AKA Hero Dirt. Yes, your ideal conditions that you want to hit up first before any of your friends find out. Sure you want to keep it low key, but be a good trail steward and let your buddies know its time to shred.

Hulls Gulch is one of the true classics of Boise. It’s got a nice steady grade, some fun little technical challenges (including one pretty imposing rock feature), and a babbling little creek nearby. Its only real shortcoming is its popularity–with lots of traffic and blind corners, downhill bikers shouldn’t expect to let it rip. Hikers, joggers, bikers…everyone loves this trail. It’s also got a sandy composition and drains really well, so it’s useable when many other trails are too wet.

    Conditions are good!

  7. jdelga says:

    Hulls, Moto, Bob’s 1st half, road, redcillfs. 30-40% soft but not taking damage. Avoidable puddles. Earlier riders rutted some areas.

  8. jdelga says:

    Some soft shoulders easy to avoid and puddles that are easily ridden through. Based on how soft Hulls is right now, I assume much of the other stuff is still muddy.

  9. dwalters31 says:

    How is Hulls today anyone know?

  10. NavinJohnson says:

    Great condition as of March 7. Hero dirt is right. May be a little wetter today (3/9) due to rainy conditions. Probably better to stay off of it today.

  11. MJ Mather says:

    I rode lower Hulls today and it was ok for riding. There is a detour on Red Fox which reroute s you over the Chickadee Ridge, this area was somewhat muddy. I would avoid and take road up to Lower Hulls which was fine, just a couple very small muddy areas to ride through.

  12. amychills says:

    Packed snow for the most part but a fair share of ice too, some spots softening up and will be muddy by afternoon.

  13. ramihz says:

    not much snow to deal with on Hulls. Just a few patches.

  14. heavy_braker says:

    No mud early this morning, just wet sand and some snow up higher.

  15. Trailman says:

    Best choice for today – hero sand.

  16. Kirk Cheney says:

    Still a few puddles but you can ride through them.

  17. jdelga says:

    As an out and back was suprisingly good. Puddles in the same suspect spots as always. CB Park via owls/redfox hulls out and back was great.

  18. Trailman says:

    Surprising amount of moisture on the trail, interspersed with long good stretches. If we ride through the muddy sections we can keep it from widening even more…

  19. mabrew says:

    Trail was in very good shape yesterday (1/14/18). With no moisture last night and another dry day today the conditions will only improve. Watch for the really shaded sections though as they aren’t thawing and therefore can get slippy. Get some before the rain hits this week.
