A nice connection between Highlands Trail and Bob's Trail.

Don't use this trail when conditions are muddy.

Description

This trail serves as a connection between Highlands Trail and Bob's Trail and can used in either direction though there are steep sections either way. This is an old trail that had some rerouting and maintenance added on steep sections. It's a nice addition to the trail system.

As of 2014, this is a new trail in the Ridges to Rivers system.

Urban Connection provides a fantastic view of downtown Boise. It's especially "breathtaking" if you climb this section from Bob's instead of taking the more gradual path up from Highlands.
