Just wrapped up that hike. Definitely feels like alpine but there’s quite a bit of road construction going on. Needs better signage. Rustic ski resort in every sense of the word.

Was going for Mores Loop but road blocked. Super short with nice spot for picnic or camping at top of loop. You can cut straight to Pioneer Lodge from this loop, so that made for a bit nicer view and hike. If you just need to get out of your vehicle and move for 20-30 minutes this is a good lil hike

Great in the winter for cross country skiing.
Great in the summer for getting out of Boise's heat.

My first time snowshoeing was on this trail and it was great. I would recommend for others looking to try snowshoeing.

Gorgeous. Went up to theNordic Lodge and snowshoed Streamside Trail. I think we got lost because that was a steep decline and a killer uphill return!

Snowshoed this yesterday. Loved it.

Was unable to access the trail in mid March. Not a year round trail for on foot. You can rent snow shoes or do cross country skiing but the trail is unmaintained for winter climates.

Great dog walking path!

I love the green belt! It's shaded and follows the Boise river so it's not as hot. There are eateries all along the way. Easy walking for little kids.

A nice trail. Start at the stack rock trailhead and then follow the eastside trail after you make it through the entrance exam. The last 2-3 miles is on the main road...if this was all trail I'd have rated it quite a bit higher.

It was a fun hike, but definitely a long one! Can't wait to do the 11mi loop again!

Beautiful trail for biking, walking, jogging for all ages. Lots to see and look at. Places to fish and swim and enjoy a snack. Can't get enough of this gorgeous trail.

Went today and was nervous after reading the Memorial Day snow post! But wow it is almost completely clear

Hiked Around the Mountain on Memorial Day 2017. First 1/2 dry and lovely. 2nd 1/2 was 90% still covered in 3-4 or more inches of snow. Made for a great workout. It was beautiful but we are tired now!

Pretty, but it's closed right now , unfortunately we didn't see the signs they were knocked down so 20 minutes in the trailed ended due to logging activity . Sad :(

I've ran the Around the Mountain trail a number of times in the past year. It's now one of my favorites, especially when the temperatures in the valley soar during the summer. The trail is well marked and easily accessible to mountain bikers, hikers and runners.

Have done a couple different trails on the mountain. The Dirty Dash had been held here a few years in a row. lots of fun and good scenery. well maintained trails.

Considering we had 3 kids ages 5,3,1 we did the trek in 5 hours. It's a beautiful hike would be more fun on a mountain bike though.

Great little ski hill. Love the Nordic Trails so close to town. The drivers on the road need to chill out though. Its only about 45 min. (16 miles) out of town and yet people still think driving over the speed limit on such a dangerous road is the cool thing to do.... Sad.

Other than ski , you can do snowshoeing on in the winter.. The trails are moderate and fun.

I have hiked this set of trails for the past three years. They are easy and all have great views of the resort . Best time is in the fall when the colors start to show !

I went snowboarding there a few years ago. The snow was amazing and the lines were short. Two things that attract me to return again. I enjoyed the affordable price for the lift ticket and the variety of terrain. About the only thing that could be said in a negative kind of way, would be the switchback and winding road up from Boise. Otherwise a great place to go and enjoy a day on the slopes.
