The Corrals trail boasts a nice wide path and expansive views out to the Owhyees. It can be a bit hot in the summer and can also get very windy if there are storms in the area, so I would advise going during cooler times of the year when it’s clear out (and taking a windbreaker just in case). I have found it to be one of the best trails to bring dogs thanks to long stretches with good visibility, making it difficult for mountain bikers to sneak up on you and your unsuspecting pup. This is just a short, five-minute drive up Bogus Basin Road.
Want to try one of Boise’s most popular hikes? Try the Table Rock hike up to the giant cross on the mountain with incredible views of the Treasure Valley. It’s only about 45mins – 1 hour tp hike up depending on your speed, but you will go at a steady incline most of the time. Many visitors opt for this hike because it can be done quickly and easily. You can also drive up here if you’re not wanting to hike, but still want to see a gorgeous sunset! It’s one of my favorites hikes near Boise mainly because of the views.
NOTE: If you do decide to hike on any of these trails, please make sure you help keep them maintained. Never hike when it’s muddy and always step aside if you see a mountain biker come down the hill. As always, pack your trash out to everyone can continue to enjoy these trails.
Hope you enjoyed this list of hikes near Boise! Are there any others I should add to the list that you love?
