Around the Mountain – Bogus Basin, Idaho

IMG_4057

“Around the Mountain” is the name of Idaho’s arguably best MTB-ride.  Located in the Bogus Basin Recreation Area near Boise this trail – guess what – runs around the mountain and it takes 16.4 km/10.2 miles and 375 m/1230 ft of ascent/descent to complete the loop.  The trail is nicely maintained and there are several options for the final downhill.  The “Morning Star” seems to be the most fun-track downhill with a couple of jumps and berms.   On MTB-Project.com “Around the Mountain” was even temporarily rated among the top ten rides in the US.  So, if you come to Boise, ID,  it certainly is a must-ride.
