“Flowy singletrack with some climbs, lizards, and lots of character.”— Tyler Zundel
The main loop of this system is to go around the outside of the trail, tracing a roughly catcher's mitt shaped path.
The loop has one significant climb which will be at the midpoint if you start off Cartwright, or right at the beginning if you begin at Collister. The remainder of the trail is nice, flowy singletrack that rolls the sagebrush covered Boise foothills.
A local favorite approach is to do 2 laps around the loop, one in each direction. As with most trails, the character is completely different in each direction.
This trail has dirt, sand, and gravel, but not rocky or technical sections. It's a great workout and should be on the rotation for any Boise riders' after work regimen.
