Good in and out hike with spectacular views!Sometimes trail was hard to find and branches to what looked like other trails, but not too bad to find the general route. Some steep rock crossing was required.

Water was too high to hike the trail so we walked the dirt road and climbed the rocks to find geodes.

Couldn’t do the trail. Creek was too high and deep and impassable.

Juniper is an all-time favorite of mine. Beautiful scenery with a great view from the top.

Very nice trail. Solitude defined.

Wonderful beautiful quiet hike among featured tuff pillars. Not busy, not empty - we were in awe of the climbing potential

This is a beautiful drive with plenty of opportunities to explore, camp, and hike on the side. The Uplands are different from any other ecosystem in Southern Idaho and fall is a great time to drive it, as the cottonwood trees are changing color.

Easy trail. No indication whatsoever but the path to follow is very clear. Trail head is just after crossing the bridge at the camp site, on the left. Once reaching the end, instead of doing a loop, I continued straight to follow the steps of a hiker who left a recording on the app 4 years ago. I reached a fence and couldn’t continue (not sure whether it was a private land or not). Instead, I followed the fence in the right (no more trail there) and reached a canyon that I couldn’t cross (too steep) to reach the road on the other side. I ended up going back to the trail thankfully without crossing any snake in the way. Note that the part of the loop going back in the initial trail of as not visible at all.

Nice trail with cool views of Succor Creek. Unfortunately, I went off trail into the narrow canyon near the trailhead and got into poison ivy. Be careful that you don't do the same!

Stunning! Amazing! Awesome! We completed Juniper Gulch on the last day of our 3 day Oregon Desert Trail Section 25 backpacking trip. Our group dropped in from the top (north) and hiked down the gulch to the trailhead. If you have it in you, I highly recommend hiking all the way to the top for an amazing view of the entire area. It's a steep climb out of the gulch, but absolutely worth it!

Although this trail is only a simple walk around the crater, this is a stunningly beautiful place far off the beaten path. Coffeepot Crater is one of the youngest lava flows in the country, relatively unchanged by time since it occurred. The shades of purple, red, and orange in the volcanic rock are incredible. The last three miles of the dirt road to the parking lot are very rough. I would advise only those with high clearance vehicles to attempt it - I drive a Forester and had to slow down quite a bit in places to avoid potholes. I've read that you can hike down into the crater, but I chose to explore the terrain around it instead of in it.

Juniper Gulch is truly a hidden gem. I can't even describe how beautiful the scenery is, so just look at the photos I've uploaded. There is parking at the trailhead and some shade throughout. The trail follows a dry creek bed up into the gulch, getting steeper as you gain elevation. The last quarter mile or so is difficult if you're not in great shape like me. This is worth the two hour drive from Boise, without a doubt.

Leslie Gulch is grouped in with Succor Creek State Park on this site, which is actually about 17 miles away, so I'm adding this review specifically for the Upper Leslie Gulch trail. This is an absolutely beautiful hike that is easy enough for young children, but there is almost no shade the entire way. It was very hot in May when I hiked it, so bring plenty of water and watch out for snakes. The hoodoo formations are incredible, with a few opportunities for rock climbing along the trail. There is parking at the trailhead, which is well marked with signs. The trail follows a dry creek bed towards the end, eventually climbing into a canyon that is impassable due to steep rocks and overgrown brush. Camping is available at Slocum Creek a few miles down the road at Lake Owyhee.

I hiked Upper Leslie Gulch and Dago Gulch in May 2017. Dago Gulch is a flat jeep trail that dead ends at a clearly marked private property. It has great views of the large hoodoo formations prevalent in the Leslie Gulch area. It is wide and flat enough to be family friendly, just be sure to bring plenty of water, as it can be very hot in the summer. The trailhead is easily accessible on a well-traveled dirt road and has a dirt parking area and is well marked with signage. Camping is available at Slocum Creek a few miles down the road on the shore of Lake Owyhee.

Clean free camp site, first come first serve, get cozy with your neighbors because you’re all right on top of each other, but you are surrounded by tall scenic landscapes. The views are spectacular with amazingly colored landscapes. Tons of trails to hike and drive. Would totally recommend anyone to go if you get a chance. About a 2 hr drive to the campsites if your coming from the Boise area of Idaho.

Awesome day hike! Really surprised by this one. It's tucked away on some back roads. Spent about 5 hours back there and didn't see another person. Would definitely do again. The only thing I would recommend is to download the directions prior to entering the area. There isn't any cell service within 20 miles. So if you aren't familiar you will surely miss your turn. Hike was awesome. Not too difficult and the view just got better as I went deeper into the trail.

I took the jeep and dogs out from Kuna along the back roads toward Jordan Valley and then connected with the route thru to leslie gulch. The road was washboarded out pretty bad for quite a bit of the trip and it was HOT! When we got to the gulch, it was mostly dried up. I think this year (2013)has been a hard, dry summer. On the way back we turned north and out thru Succor creek. There is some "middle earth" looking terrain up there! So cool to see (but hot and dusty) and we did a little exploring. I won't be doing this trip again in summer... maybe spring time would be better. We had fun but man was the jeep dusty! ha BC

This is a very fun and pretty trail to hike

We visited the Leslie Gulch area and the weather was perfect. A lot of people were also enjoying the great weather and the very scenic area. The road in the canyon was washed out in most of the low spots, but still passable by automobiles. I added some photos to this guide.

This is a great driving trip to take while it is still cool in late April, May or early June. Watch for the mud. This time of year you'll see Big Horn sheep along with their lambs and the rock formations are extremely interesting.

We visited the area today. It had recently rained, but the Leslie Gulch and Succor Creek Roads were in good shape. At least there was no dust. Fog hampered visibility and photography for most of our ride. I added several photos to the Guide.
