The Table Rock area offers challenging hiking and mountain biking. Most users access these trails from the Old Idaho Penitentiary parking lot, where there is a kiosk and directional signage for the trails. The Table Rock area offers stunning views of Boise and the Treasure Valley, and is a favorite among trail enthusiasts for sunset hikes and rides. The Table Rock area should be avoided when the temperatures are above freezing during winter months, as well as after spring and summer rain storms, as the soils contain significant amounts of clay, and trail damage occurs easily at such times.
2445 Old Penitentiary Rd
Boise, ID 83709
A surprising waterfall and lush riparian area filled with waterbirch and red osier dogwood trees. Visitors can hike the easy ¼-mile Jump Creek Falls Trail - you may get your feel wet! - walk high and dry to the Falls Overlook on a recently improved trail, or picnic near the rock crevices and meandering stream. Swimmers will find a refreshing dip at the base of the falls.
