Live on the edge! Well maybe not the very edge but close enough to check out the great views.

Overview

This trail originally ran all the way to Lydle Gulch. This is no longer the case as it turns southwest to avoid private property, ending now at the corner of Columbia and Eyele (Oregon Trail detours here as well).

Description

This trail has great views of the Boise River including the Boise Diversion Dam that supplies water to the New York Canal. With its many connecting trails to the Oregon Trail (Bonneville Point), it makes for a great loop of variable distance, or drop down Boise Diversion Dam Trail and loop over to the Boise River Greenbelt.

Please mind the side trails that head off to the cliffs. They often run out to viewpoints with serious drops. Nothing a responsible adult would have issue with but kids may need extra supervision.
