Jennie Lake is a beautiful mountain lake nestled in the Boise Mountains. This is a great opportunity for residents of the large, growing, urban area of Boise to visit a pristine lake. Due to its proximity (a little over an hour) to such a populated area this trail is quite popular, and special consideration to preserve this delicate area should be considered. The trail begins by following Bear Creek upstream. It gently climbs, skirting flowery hillsides and meadows and thick fir forests typical of the Boise mountains. It is well suited for any hiking ability and there are plenty of resting spots near the creek.
