Review: Lots of miles to be had out here, most of it exposed in the dry hills. Most of the trails are just hardpack or sandy cruising with plenty of climbs up the big rounded hills, but there are a few segments or stretches that get technical enough to keep you on your toes. Overall, I found this system not particularly interesting relative to other area options. The worst part is that there is a huge feedlot close to the trailhead and you are breathing the stench for most of the available mileage, even as you get further away.

Review: Wilson Creek is best in the spring and fall when the temps are cooler and dirt conditions are better. There are plenty of natural obstacles and technical riding, but since these trails are unmaintained, conditions do change.

All in all, this is one of my favorite trail systems in the valley and a good alternative to the foothills if you want to avoid people.

Review: Great trails, lots of route options. This is a good alternative when the Boise foothills are wet or snowy. The "China ditch" section along Reynolds Creek is particularly cool terrain.

Review: I used to ride this trail in high school and in college. I don't think I've been out there since 2002 though, it used to be a lot of fun and could be technically challenging at times due to obstacles and climbing. If I'm ever home again and have my bike id love to ride it again; especially Reynolds Creek Canyon.
