Victor, Idaho Map

Only come here if you're just wanting a quick sweaty workout. The trail is steep with a stagnant cattle pond at the top.

My family and I thought this was a pretty difficult trail. The whole time, you are walking up, up, up! During the hike up, it's quite beautiful. You'll be surrounded by gorgeous flowers and butterflies. The top has great views. Lastly, amongst the pretty flowers and butterflies were some pretty annoying and big flies, recommend bringing some bug spray.

Nice little hike, right outside of town. Met a large herd of cows at the top of the hill, a couple of them hiked with us for awhile.

Part of a much longer trail. You can do whatever length you please. After the first 1.5 miles the trail gets steeper and is covered with more rocks. The adjacent underbrush is very overgrown so it is hard to see the creek or find animals.

mountain biking

This makes for a great quick mountain bike ride with fun downhill on the way back. People do hike it too but be on alert as it seems to be primarily used by bikers and is a fairly popular trail.

This was fun & dog friendly. Not a ton of views but was a good time and convenient drive from victor. Also lots of fresh moose tracks right up the trail so you could likely see wildlife on a good day.

This was a nice trail! We hiked it at dusk so we made a fair amount of noise to warn off any bears. The trail runs parallel to a road but with a lot of pine trees on either side. Didn't see anyone else on the trail.

on Oliver Peak

Tuesday, July 18, 2017

I'm giving this hike 4 stars only because the name of it is misleading. It does not go to the top of Oliver Peak, unless the top of Oliver Peak is much farther than the 8.4 mile round trip that is indicated by this app. It is a beautiful and fun trail to hike, though. The trail takes you in and out of the forest so you get great views of the valley and surrounding mountains, but still get to hike in the shade about half the time. There were so many wildflowers! Once you get to the ridge line you are walking through a field of wildflowers for almost a quarter mile. Absolutely gorgeous!
So the trail splits once you hit the ridge, we took the left trail since that is what others recommended. Once on the ridge, what I assume is Oliver Peak, is easy to identify. The trail continues southeast and goes right by the peak, though. Reading other reviews we decided to bushwhack our way to the top of the peak instead of continuing down the trail. Sure wish I knew where that trail led though. It was a fun one to hike and I'd love to follow it to the end one of these days.

If you're looking for a workout this is the trail , steady incline and rocky with not much to see on way up. The top is nice however.

Nice easy trail. Lots of wildflowers. Too bad it wasn't a loop trail.

First and foremost, it should be mud pond. When I arrived I thought to myself "this can't be it" and continued on for another 1/2 mile and found nothing.
After seeing pictures from another post I realized that I was at the right spot.
I suppose I call a lake something much bigger than this?
The hike itself is very vertical from the beginning and the first 1/3 mile has been overtaken by flooding causing a deep ditch in the middle.
Overall it is a decent hike, the payoff wasn't worth the hike, mainly because it's used for cattle grazing, walked through cow dung and battled through a 100+ herd.

trail running

Fun trail. Current state isn't the best. It's a bit washed out and muddy in spot but in other spots it's great. The first 2/5 is awesome. Really pretty and beside the big tree that fell in the middle of the trail, it's clean. However, once your approaching the first ridge and come to a grove of fallen trees (many in the way of the path) the trail will become harsh. Towards the top there are still a lot of snow banks. Be very careful on them. They are slippery and cover the trail. As someone else has commented, approaching the top is very annoying. The snow is covering the northwest side of the hill. However just stay on dirt and you should be alright. There is a path that comes around through some bushes. Not too bad but I didn't take it. I just followed the ridge up and down. The top is great. Nice and clear. Overall, the trail needs some work. But if you're down to just go for it and push your self through the times that trail isn't the best, it's great.

Great trail for dogs, especially those that like to swim!

Did this with my son (10). It was a pleasant hike. Passed 3 other groups including one motorcycle (trail is closed to motorized vehicles). Once you hit the ridge the trail divides and the main trail drops into the next drainage. Stay left and go southeast on the ridge. The trail continues on past the peak and doesn't go up the peak. We didn't know this and followed the trail to the south ridge then went up the ridge to the peak. Easier route would be to go up the southwest ridge through a sagebrush covered slope (this is how we came down).
