Description

This is one possible loop with the many trails in Military Reserve, which is the trail system closest to downtown Boise.

This particular loop makes an excellent walk or jog with some elevation gain, though it does have steep parts that will likely slow you down.

You'll find excellent views over downtown across the foothills.

In spring and early summer the wildflower displays make it even better. In winter these trails are often muddy, and any time of year you should take care after recent rain.

Muddy trails are easily damaged, so please wait for them to dry out before using.
