Open June-October, depending on snow conditions.
Features: Birding — Fall Colors — Views — Wildflowers — Wildlife

Description

From the trailhead, go a short distance bearing left at the first intersection. Continue on switchbacks up through granite rock outcroppings with views into the Boise valley. The trail then meanders through low brush until it comes out on the east slope of the mountain.

This portion of the trail is exposed with travel through scree. Loop around Mores Mountain with great views to the west. The trail then wanders through ponderosa pine forest and loops back out into sagebrush flat to complete the run.

Flora & Fauna

The trail is a wonderful opportunity to view wildflowers, including lupine, goldenweed, indian paintbrush, and sandwort. Watch for stinging nettle. Black bears, elk, mountain lions, deer and many birds live in this area.
