Very strenuous hike for someone my age, 65 . Was able to do it but definitely felt tired by the time I got to the top. I rate this an advanced hike

Great trail for mountain biking for a beginner like me.

Good trail. Is a Very narrow trail. Good for more experienced riders. (I am a beginner). A lot of scarey side hills. Difficult side hill elivation climbs. I will get better and hope to go back with more confidence in my skills.

Easy wide trail, with views 75% of the time. Getting to the mine is all uphill but fairly easy. The mine makes the hike all worth it!

Great trail. My favorite part was getting to the top forest area after 5 miles. Expect the first 5 miles to be uphill. The way down is easy but for you to get back to the parking area requires you to walk along Warm Springs Drive and through a neighborhood. Took me 5 hours exactly and clocked 14 and 1/2 miles total. Great day hike. Bring full water thermos, extra water and snacks.

Wonderful loop hike in the foothills of Boise outside of Bogus. I hiked the second week of October about 2pm on a Friday and there was not a person in sight until I came back to the small parking pull out and ran into two groups taking off for their hike late afternoon. Some parts of the trail are a bit washed out, I’d recommend good hiking shoes. During early fall there are a few points that overview beautiful changing colors in the trees, definitely enjoyed the views.

Great break from traveling west. Perfect weather low 50’s- bikes, babies, dogs, runners all encountered. Nice trails!

This trail is amazing. I squeezed in an afternoon trek with my pup as fall starts to kick things off. So many trees and plants were right in the middle of transition. Very cool. Overall, neatly kept and a unique oasis of shaded single track super close to Boise. The other reviews are correct, the last 1.8 miles of elevation gain can be a breather, but it’s not super steep. Take your time, enjoy the scenery and with a slower pace it’s fairly easy. Note: On my map recording, I got distracted and just blindly followed a trail, recognized I was off course, and adjusted my path through some simple slope clearings. Dog stuff: My 2 year old pup had a blast. Crossing creeks, and moderate rock hopping every now and then she handled it all like a champ. However, I’m glad we didn’t bring our older/senior pup, the cardio might be a bit much with that last elevation gain.

Trail was terminated by barriers in a couple spots, and never saw the signs for "Eagle Rock Trail." No shade, good views of downtown though. Done it once now, won't bother doing it again.

Went for a last minute Sunday hike and the weather was perfect. This was my first time hiking to Stack Rock. Took about 4 1/2 hours. I parked at the “new” paved parking trailhead, watch for the signs. Or, if you want to cut the hike by about 40 minutes, park where the sign said “Trail Crossing.” Great hike and pretty busy on Sunday but very enjoyable. Went for 11 plus miles and my phone died on the way back to the car. Bring plenty of water. Also, something I didn’t know is if you are leaving from the new paved parking area, it’s a good 5 hour hike. On this higher trailhead you will pass the lower access trailhead which continues to the Stack Rock trailhead which actually loops around. It does take a little longer to loop around but it’s very pretty. Would be tough to do the full trail with younger children.

My all-time favorite family friendly hike with cuts to shorten if needed. Stunning views and easy well maintained trail. Early October, this time we had some patches of light snow. Road up had some pretty muddy patches.

I loved this trail, although with the new trailhead we hiked much longer than intended. I clocked 11.6 miles. My four year old hiked 10.5 of those miles. There were so many beautiful views interspersed with traipses through the beautiful pine trees. Wonderful time of year and reminded me a bit of the Pacific Northwest in the woods with all the moss growing in trees and the ground.

Awesome, shaded, alpine trail. Not to bad climbing wise. Perfect temp in October with the sun up

Lots of friendly bikers and killer views

Awesome trail! Second time on it and my 14 yr old daughter did it with me this time for some conditioning for hunting season. Trail is actually 14.56 miles not 13.8. Took us 5.5 hours. Cold today but we were layered up and felt great. Beautiful scenery, fall colors, and don’t miss the view from the top!

Awesome trail with great views, dipping in and out of dense trees and sandy rock formations. Be careful of mountain bikers whipping around corners and coming downhill. Many don’t announce themselves.

Trail was great. Lots of shady places along the way. Was not steep and was great for our dog and all ages of kids. We were able to compete the trail in less then a hour with our dog (who had to stop and sniff just about every bush along the way!) We will definitely be doing this trail again!

First time doing this loop and it is definitely one of the best longer loops in the immediate Boise area. took me 5.5 hours and was lucky enough to be up in the evergreens for the first snow of the season! This is a great fall hike as both dry creek and shingle creek have some hardwood trees that change color.

Not really a hard hike, but not easy. Fall colors are starting to come out. Thank God no snakes.

good test trails nothing extremely hard. don't really need 4wheel drive...

Great little day hike with our dog. There were a few decent inclines. Nice that there were several different levels of routes that you could take.

Only had about 4 hours to work with, so went up Dry Creek until about the two-hour mark (well, the 5 mile mark, actually) then turned around. Dry Creek just gets more beautiful the higher you get on it. Today (Sept 29) was wonderful weather for hiking - starting temp around 35 degrees, off-and-on clouds, and max temp around 50.

Nice easy hike with a historical connection. Bring the kids and dog, nothing too difficult and easy to get to.

Great trail for a leisure easy hike. Went out early morning and saw several people (all with friendly dogs). Great view of the city!

The foot hills so of course limited shade, a good amount of climbing, all in all makes you a better rider if you ride every week. I like to connect over to sidewinder till it gets to 8th street trail and then turn around and come back down sidewinder. Fun ride.
