This is a very pretty hike that feels extremely remote while being amazingly close to civilization.
The directions here make a terrific approach for a summit bid on Box Elder. Once you reach the saddle, you make a right at the three-way intersection and climb the ridgeline to the summit.
This is a beautiful trail with easy access from the city. It does get quite hot in the summer - there is only a little shade at the beginning of the trail. Beautiful views overlooking the city once you gain some elevation - and it interconnects to a number of other trails. It is a busy trail, and you'll see a lot of other hikers and bikers, especially on the weekends.
