This was a gorgeous forested hike. It was really neat to see Stacked Rock in the distance about a quarter of the way through the hike. I highly recommend this for a day hike near Boise.

Fun little hike. I used to do it all the time when I lived in Boise. Not a lot of shade in the summer though so early or lake hour recommended and lots of water with that desert heat. I posted views and am sharing my blog post because I hiked it after it burnt down a few years ago and the photos are unique! (https://www.brisul.com/blog//2016/07/table-rock-fire-in-boise.html)

Prior to June 1 the trailhead is closed and you will have to add some uphill to your hike from the Shafer Butte gate on Bogus Basin Road up to the trailhead. I went 2 more miles down the road and went in the backway on trail 198 Gorgeous! There is still a little snow, 3rd weekend in May. Wild flowers are just starting to bloom. The granite sand can be very slippery so choose your footwear carefully. I saw a Toyota Prius and a Honda Accord on the road. I took my Ford Taurus, and I made it in and out, but I DO NOT recommend it! I fear she shall never be the same.

Very close to the river so my dog could hop in to cool down!

I thought this was a great day trip to escape for a few hours. Once you get to the top, there's a number of trails to take off on and explore. But driving straight through only takes a couple hours

These trails are a great way to familiarize yourself with Bogus Basin, whether you're planning on returning for more hiking, mountain biking, snowshoeing, or skiing. The views are awesome, there are wildflowers along the entire route, the ascents and descents aren't too steep, and the air is fresh. I will be hiking this trail several times once Bogus opens for summer activity.

Yellow wild flowers, lupine, sheep ( a ton) and 6 horses. It was raining hard and my cell was almost off. I felt totally in Mother Nature’s power, and I liked it.

Tranquil stroll on a treelined gravel path along the Boise River. No bikes allowed.
Please pickup after your dog

A peaceful and easy walk along the river.

good walk but due to a bug infestation many of the trail side trees were removed. otherwise very peaceful walk, even with my two toddlers.

Super beautiful right now, a good 4 mile stretch of straight incline to get you huffin and puffin. On the loop back down, the 8th st motorcycle trail is pretty rutted out and steep, so a little sketchy to hike down, AND this “route” is somehow not accurate. We “missed” a turn off femrite patrol to watchmans because it doesn’t actually exist. Ended up just taking watchmans the other direction when it actually converged with femrite, then going left on three bears trail back to Shaw mtn road and walking a short distance back up the road to the original trail head

I feel like this hike gets hyped a lot, but it was underwhelming to me. Fun, but nothing special. Stack Rock itself is cool.

Pretty view of the Boise River canyon coming out of Lucky Peak Dam. Great place to watch the sunset too.

Not the worst trail in the foothills, but not the best either. As per usual, it is more scenic once you're high up closer to the forest. Definitely a good workout.

Great trail. The lupine on the northeast face were absolutely amazing when I hiked it in July 2017.

Well beatin tail makes it easy in nice weather. Bring lots of water and use sunscreen, 0% shade. Remember to pack out some trash you find up there!

Went on Sunday and the trail is very nice with lots of shade. Go in the morning to beat the heat.

Great hike - pretty views. It gets challenging in the heat but doable. Would hike again especially earlier in the morning.

Very good. Loved the views

Great uphill climb. No shade or trees so best to hike morning or on days where it isn’t as hot. There were some beautiful yellow flowers blooming. At the end of the homestead trail, you have the ability to continue uphill or downhill on the lucky peak trail.

there are several trails in the area all with the same entrance. not actually sure I went to Burnt Car, but did have a great hike. would recommend!

It's so green right now! Nice hike. There are 2 small steam crossings at the beginning (water your dogs!), but nothing higher up.

Great trail with scenic views of Boise! The Table Rock trail connects with the Shoshone Loop trail so you have plenty of options. Dog friendly but must be kept on leash! Expect moderate traffic but wide trails allow the traffic flow. The Wife, the doggo, and I hiked up to the cross and back down which was a great workout! Will definitely hike again!

Crestline is one of my favorite loops, which I recently realized joins with the riparian trail that leads up into the Upper Hull's Gulch area. It's a beautiful hike, just bring plenty of water in the summer and watch out for cyclists!

Really enjoyable hike. We didn’t do the loop, we did up and back because of so many motorcycles on the top of the loop. Up and straight back down ended up being about 8 miles. Good for kids if they hike often.

Beautiful
