Trail is riding well right now and there are no reports of mud, deadfall, or snow.

Also called “the Crack,” this jump line provides a break from the Boise norm: a series of rollable tabletops and doubles, followed by a sketchy and exciting sled down a narrow sand wash. This section changes with the seasons, so the conditions are always a surprise. People often use this trail to make a loop out of Bob’s and Lower Hulls.

  • tastyz March 24, 2018 at 9:08 amTop of trail dropping in off 8th street was open 3/23. Detour at base of trail dumps you out back on 8th street and construction will not let you drop down to to lower hulls. Trail was in good condition but larger jump lips looked a little soft.

  • jdelga February 7, 2018 at 9:45 pmMarkers for construction, but trail is still clear and in good shape.
  • bbringhurst January 20, 2018 at 1:10 pmGreat, thanks for the update!
  • Kirk Cheney January 20, 2018 at 11:51 amCareful! The lips on the jumps have been updated and made much larger and steeper. Most of the big kickers are optional, but one isn’t. I’m all for it—there should be some advanced trails in this big trail network. Just know what to expect.
