Trail shared by Tom Renfrow

This trail is a great singletracktrail. It was a picture perfect 75 degree day for the Renfrow family run!

Features River/Creek · Views

Need to Know

Take plenty of water. As soon as you start up the hill there is no more water for you or your pet. The trail is also open to motos, so make sure you're staying alert for traffic.

Runner Notes

There are several places where the trees are very thin and the trail is hot due to direct exposure.

Description

This trail starts off with a nice, level, 0.5 mile stroll through the trees next to the North Fork of the Boise River. But it turns into a steep 8-10% climb for the next 3 miles. There are many swimming/wading spots in the river when you get done.
