Trail is good to go, but expect dry, dusty and loose trail surface and/or occasionally deep sandy areas.

Red Cliffs is to Boise trails what bacon is to a breakfast combo: it’s rarely the main event, but it never fails to leave you with a smile. Red Cliffs has so much natural flow that’s it reminiscent of an intentional flow trail, except that it was created before intentional flow trails were a thing. Red Cliffs is popular with all kinds of trail users, though, and sees heavy traffic, so don’t get carried away. Red Cliffs is often connected with Kestral for a run or a short bike ride, and with Hulls or Sidewinder for a longer trip.
