Clear trails for the most part, but may run into occasional puddles or stretches of muddy areas. It is encouraged to go through puddles, and not around them. Also to turn back on long muddy stretches that damage or widen trails.

Widely considered the crown jewel of Boise trails, this one’s got it all: rolling singletrack, massive ponderosa pines, views that stretch all the way to the Sawtooths, and plenty of berms. Typically ridden counterclockwise—don’t try to go the other direction on a weekend! Around the Mountain is popular with trail users of all types. You can loop it with Deer Point and Morningstar, and even throw Mahalo in there for extra jollies. Many of Boise’s best mountain bike rides incorporate ATM in some fashion.

  • Earl Parrot June 30, 2018 at 9:28 amHeed the warning sign when driving up Bogus Basin rd. They are repaving and wait times are as long as 30 minutes. Not sure if they are working weekends. They were still working at 730 pm on Friday.

  • ramihz May 8, 2018 at 11:23 amI don't believe ATM or Berm Baby Berm are ready / snow free. The Bogus webcam is showing lots of snow patches everywhere. If you want to avoid the heat, do Shingle Creek and Dry Creek Loop.
  • DavefromBC May 7, 2018 at 9:57 amWe are a couple from BC visiting Boise this week to do some riding. Since our thermal tolerance is still in Canadian mode we want to check out the Around the Mountain, Berm Baby Berm area. Is it good to go yet? Eastside, Sweet Connie, Highlands was fun yesterday. Cheers and thanks in advance.
