FATMAP difficulty grade
This fun little loop is good for when you're short on time, or for newer riders looking to boost their skills.
Bucktail is purpose-built, flowy singletrack through a meadow that's free of hazards.
Riders of any level could work on cornering and building confidence with speed on this trail.
The climb is on Three Bears, which is mostly a dirt road but still a burner of a climb. What's even better: According to [Ridge to Rivers](https://www.ridgetorivers.org/2021pilotprogram/), Bucktail will soon be improved and designated for downhill bike travel only.
This is pending the completion of a hiker-only alternative trail in 2021. Note: As with other trails in the Boise Foothills, these should be avoided when muddy.
The soil here is highly erodible, and damaged trails can be impossible to repair.
