First, parking can be hard when there are many people using the trail. There is not an actual parking area, other than the side of the road and in front of the property where the trailhead starts. Might look like you're going into someone's property but the Alltrails map takes you straight to the trailhead! The hike itself was gorgeous. It was a little challenging as the incline was steep in some portions. The view was worth it though!

Blowdown has been cleared. Did most of the out and back portion hiking and it was great. Saw a handful of other groups

Great hike a bit of an elevation change throughout mile two but overall not too bad! Beautiful views and great early spring trip!

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.

Good trail. Single track. Watch out for mountain bikers.

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.

Pretty busy. Saw a lot of ill prepared parents and children heading up with no water!! I hit the trailhead at 930am and the parking lot was already full. Best advise: go early!

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 little trail, fun to see the old mine. The uphill wasn’t too bad, the downhill was not easy on the knees :) No shade unless you go up above the mine.

This is a great alternative to Stack Rock if you want a fraction of the crowds. I hiked it in the reverse direction of what’s recommended. The uphill inbound section was a good workout.

Hidden gem for sure! It’s challenging enough that you will break a sweat but there are plenty of spots to take a break a look out onto the beautiful view. Pack plenty of water and just follow the gravel towards the back of the buildings and you’ll hit the trail!

Good day hike. Really tough climb for young ones. Sunscreen and lots of water.

Beautiful walk through pine forest

We hiked this trail on May 9th around noon. My hiking goal is to enjoy the beauty in nature, and this trail didn't disappoint. The weather was amazingly perfect. Although parts of the trail were not pretty (some man-made drainage ponds and a lot of tree clearing activity with it's residual debrise), there were so many great views to make up for it that overall I really enjoyed this hike. I would say 2/3rds of it was beautiful! We stayed on the left side of the loop and went a bit beyond the trail marker that pointed to the right side of the loop. Instead of turning right at the marker to begin the loop back, we went up the path another 1/4 mile which offered some of the best views. There were rock formations plopped here and there that would be fun to explore. There were delicate flowers in bloom: yellow and purple. We didn't find the North side of the loop on the way back. We planned to go counter clockwise as you look at the trail map, but rather made it more of an out and back hike. With all the logging debrise we couldn't see the loop part very clearly, so we took the same route back. It is moderate and will get your heart pumping on some of the inclines. You can see for miles in certain areas and the views are stellar:. Stack Rocks one way, bogus another and I think even the Cascade mtn range as you get to the trail end and look through the trees to the right. The trail's description says moderately traffic, but I'd say not a lot of traffic. We met only one other set of hikers and about 6 groups of bikers on our hour and a half hike, which is not bad on a Saturday morning where other trail head parking lots were overflowing. Overall a great hike for the senses: visual treat, engages the cardio system, and the Divine pine smell, all enjoyed on a hike with few other bikers and hikers, so that you felt like you were out on your own, away from it all ....that solitude we relish...which is a fabulous feeling!

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!

We hiked the first week in May and were rewarded with a mile of lush verdant grassy pastures, which I’m sure are brown and bone dry the rest of the season! There is no shade. The abandoned mine still has some of the old machinery, which was cool. The snow caps on the horizon made a great destination view. The hike is mostly easy except for about 1000 yards of moderate gain interspersed.
