Nice easy trail. Close to home. No shade and heavy traffic. Beautiful view of the city at the top.

really nice hike! not big on views but gorgeous flowers and rushing creek sounds pretty much the whole time. we hiked 4 miles out (8 miles round-trip) as suggested by the hiker's guide of greater boise and it was perfect for a cooler day as the canyon warms up a bit. Tons of camping around but a pretty quiet trail overall.

Beautiful spring hike! Lots of flowers, easy gradual incline, and a few fun creek crossings. We only went in 3 miles and came back, just wanted to scope it out for a future backpacking spot. We’ll definitely be back to finish the entire hike soon.

A good family hike with views of downtown Boise. The final approx 1/4 leg is steep for small children, and parts of the trail have slippery silt like sand. It’s a great sunny hike with moderate traffic. Far off views of snow capped mtn range. It’s nice to see a cross still stands somewhere for the public to enjoy!

Great morning hike! Nice trail conditions.

This was a nice trail. The first portion was a fairly steady incline on a hiking trail, but when you head the cross-path it evened out and was more like a small dirt road. Lots of cows on this path! I would suggest going earlier in the morning to beat the heat as there isn’t much shade on the trail

Great views of Boise, but very crowded. Definitely a good casual weekend walk

Definitely more of a technical trail for the intermediate to advanced mountain bikers. Lots of rocks to navigate in the beginning and the trail criss-crossing the creek several times. Getting wet is unavoidable on this trail as it literally takes you through the creek at points and you have no choice but to walk your bike. The elevation gain is intense on the ascent.

This is a great trail for spring hiking and backpacking. The creek brings an abundance of animal and plant life as the steady rise in elevation takes you through ever changing surroundings. We backpacked this trail on a busy Memorial Day weekend, yet we were completely alone after about the 4 mile mark.

Great trail! Went on a rainier day so it was slippery but it was beautiful and a fun change of scenery at every bend

This is a really nice trail - beautiful views of the Treasure Valley, lots of different routes, dog friendly, kid friendly, no shade, and has a bathroom in the parking lot. Went on a Saturday mid morning, so it was a bit crowded, but didn’t feel all that packed with the different trail options. Will definitely visit this often

Beautiful views! Fun hike with kids, pretty flowers. Glad I read that there was no shade, we went on a cool day and it was perfect!

Unfortunately, there is no longer vehicle access to the top. The only access is via the hiking trail from the Old Idaho Penitentiary. The statement above, "Can also drive to top to main view." is no longer correct. See recent article: https://www.ktvb.com/article/news/crime/police-increase-patrols-at-table-rock-boise-after-multiple-instances-of-vandalism-trespassing/277-3476836f-46ff-4600-b45d-d89494a994fd

Great trail, can’t wait to do it again!

The trail is beautiful and well maintained. It was nice to get outside and soak up some sun instead of sitting around at home. The road up to the trail is super busy on the weekends so be cautious on the drive up!

Great trail today. Not a lot of shade would recommend going early so it’s not so hot. Had a great over 4 mile hike. Really a beautiful spot.

Great, easy trail for kids and dogs. No shade, highly suggest early morning or spring hike. Not many bikers on the path.

Fun trail! Watch out for snakes. Saw two doing it in the middle of the trail. Not sure what kind they were.

Decent l trail, steep for the majority of the hike. It was crowded on a weekday, late morning. Lots of dogs, some with considerate owners, some not. Not a single pair of folks walking on the trail moved to single file as is customary when people approach from opposite direction. If you are worried about social distancing, this is not the trail for you!

It's a great hike, and has a great view after about 45 minutes of walking. It's not too far away from town, but it also is quite narrow, with lots of bikers. But the scenery is awesome.

Nice hike. Not too busy this Monday morning with intermittent bikers on the trail. It's well marked with beautiful wild flowers and a great view of the city.

Beautiful hike, but only able to complete about half of it due to snow making for unstable/increased avalanche risk conditions. There is snow on 3/4 of the trail; however, definitely doable in micro spikes and with hiking poles. There are no signs/trail markers, so I was half following my Alltrails downloaded map and half making my own way by looking to where I wanted to go. I essentially walked up one of the ski runs to get up to the ridge line and continued along the ridge and partly around the mountain. I got about halfway (~ 4 miles) around the mountain, and decided that the snow softening under the sun, increased slope angle, and evidence of cracking made it not wise to continue at that time. I retraced my steps back to the inside of the mountain (closer to the ski runs) and finished the route via the Brewers' Byway trail and then the forest road back down to the parking lot. It was still a beautiful day out on the mountain and had it all to myself! Will have to complete the loop once the snow has melted.

Good trail, decent climb along Valley View trail. Nice in town loop.

it's a good trail. we got there about 3pm on a Saturday and the earlier crowd was clearing out. it is not an easy trail for first time bikers. we walked here and there. probably wont do again until we feel more ready.

Trail is really well marked. No shade, but it’s nice how it weaves around the hills. I tracked it at 6.3 mi.
