I am visiting the Boise area and just returned from a trail run in the Hulls Gulch / Camelsback Reserve. There are a plethora of trail options in this park that seems like one could spend a lifetime exploring. I went out for a nice eight mile loop that provided a good overall workout, beautiful scenery looking out over the Boise area as we climbed into the hills, and a gorgeous sunset. There were plenty of hikers, runners, and mountain bikers on the trails, and I can see why with so much variety here, but everyone shared the space and were most friendly. I will look forward to exploring more trails in this reserve next time I come to Boise.

For a city the size of Boise, having the Ridge to River trail system is a big plus. The trails can get very hot in summer, however. Not trees and lots of scrub. We especially enjoy the trails on the east side and they have fewer people and dogs..

Ridge to Rivers has over 130 miles of marked and maintained single track trails starting right in downtown Boise. Some of the best loops are combining several trails together to make anything from a 1-30 mile ride. The most popular starting spots are at the end of 9th street downtown or military reserve just behind St. Luke's hospital. Plenty of parking available. Some trails have sandy corners late in the summer.
One popular 8 mile loop is starting at Military Reserve. Take Mtn. Cove trail to Ridge Crest to Buck's to Shane's Loop - down Central Ridge. Another popular loop is off of Warm Springs Road and Council Springs. Take Homestead Trail 2 miles up to green gate - go right at intersection - ride for a couple more miles to trail head of Cobb Trail - downhill ride to bottom. Follow greenbelt back to start.
Plenty of trails to make it different with every ride/hike.

We were impressed how ll the trails were marked, we didn't buy one of the maps and between the Internet and the signs posted inthe parking lot, we're able to navigate the trails with no. Problem

This is truly one of the most extensive hiking and biking trail systems in Idaho... So much to see and do. Best to go in the spring early summer because the creek is dried up by now. We like to take our dog and he loves to splash around... this time of year is very hot and no water... Still worth it but go early morning or evening when it is cooler.
