New in Spring 2015 comes a whole new edition of Boise Trail Guide, featuring 90 hiking and running trails in the greater Boise area – greenbelt trails, mountain trails in the Boise Foothills, Bogus Basin trails, new routes in the Owyhee Canyonlands, and sweet trails in the Boise National Forest near Idaho City, Garden Valley and Smith’s Ferry.
Boise Trail Guide has such a rich diversity of trails that it will break you out of the mold of covering the same trails over and over again. That’s what I’ve heard from people who loved the first edition. Now you can experience even more new trails close to home.
The new edition includes a similar mix of trails, starting with 15 flat Greenbelt trails and 17 Easy Mountain Trails, and then building to more substantial routes with more challenge and vertical gain with 24 Moderate Mountain Trails and 27 Strenuous Mountain Trails. And then it’s capped off with seven, unforgettable Epic Mountain Trails that will test the best.
The new edition spotlights newly built, popular trails such as the Around the Mountain Trail at Bogus Basin, Freddy’s Stack Rock Trail, Highlands-Corrals-Bob’s Loop, and the Watchman Loop. It also takes a peek into a few of my favorite trails in the Owyhees with the Oolite Interpretive Trail, the West Fork Shoofly Quick Loop, and the Wilson-Reynolds Loop, among others.
In the Epic category, you’ll discover some really challenging routes in the Sawtooth Mountains, the Deadwood-Julie Creek Loop in the Boise National Forest, and Stueby’s Death March in the Boise Foothills.
