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.

An excellent new addition to the trail system in 2019, this new singletrack will create endless loop options with Eastside, Sweet Connie, and even Dry Creek.  The western portion of the trail meanders along the mountainside, dipping in and out of the trees without gaining or losing significant elevation.  There are a few cool rock outcroppings–squandered opportunities for technical features, but alas…  And there are excellent views of the foothills and downtown Boise far in the distance.  The Eastern portion of the trail is completely forested and climbs steadily but very gradually from Bogus Basin Road to the new Stack Rock trailhead.  Overall, it’s a far superior trail to the one it replaces (Entrance Exam), especially now that Exit Exam has been largely converted to a logging road.
