Saturday, November 19, 2016

Alt Names

Upper 8th Street Trails, Ridge To Rivers Trail System, Trail #6 Loop, Trail #4, Crane Gulch Connector, 8th Street Motorcycle Trail, Curlew Connector, Lucky Peak Trail, Hornet Loop, Show Mountain Rd, East Highland Valley Rd, Hull Creek, Trail #4 Loop, Femrite's Patrol Trail #6

Last Known StatusOpen

Located just minutes away from Boise, the Ridge to Rivers Trail System primarily consists of hiking, mountain bike and equestrian trails but offers a few designated OHV loops. You will enjoy the panoramic views of Boise and the surrounding area, but to really get the most out of this trail system you would need a mountain bike. Due to steep grades and off camber turns the trails are geared for the more advanced rider. Nearby Lucky Lake Reservoir has a sandy beach, boating and fishing.
