“Simply the best descent in the Boise area.”

Description
This action packed trail drops from the Boise Ridge Road to Bogus Basin Road. It contains an excellent drop down the Dry Creek Canyon, with numerous creek crossings that you can do the wet way (dry creek is typically not dry), or ride the log bridges across. It's pretty technical, and very fun. The other great thing is that for some reason the trees extend about 2000 feet lower than on most other local trails, providing shade and making this an excellent choice on a hotter day.

It's also possible to ride up this, but you better be strong both technically and in the quads!

A good way to access this is by riding up Hard Guy and then riding a couple miles west on Boise Ridge Road to the start. From the bottom, you can ride a little way down Bogus Basin Road to the start of Corrals Trail and take that if you want to link this with other trails such as Bob's Trail or Lower Hulls Gulch Trail.

Up or down, it's a classic, go ride it!
