Table Rock Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"Boise Front foothills, just east of Boise. A great view of Table Rock's prow, including the cross and the communications towers; a social smorgasbord of the upper east end."

"An uphill climb, starting from behind the Old Idaho State Penitentiary, traverses to the top of Table Rock’s sandstone cliffs for a sweeping view of the Treasure Valley. Trailside interpretive signs describe the impact of various geological events on the vistas.

This well-used trail combines history and geology, rewarding hikers with one of the best locations for viewing the valley. Table Rock is a Boise icon and a favorite site for entertaining visitors. Start the hike in the busy trailhead parking lot behind the Bishop’s House. Other trails in the area join the following route. Traverse upwards, passing near homes and along singletrack and doubletrack trails. Interpretive signs at a vista point describe the geological basis of the area."

"Northeast Boise foothills. Despite its proximity to downtown and its popularity with locals and tourists, this is one of the premier rides in the Boise Front. The rocky ruggedness of the terrain combines with crows nest views of the Boise Valley and the city itself to make this little ride seem big in some ways.

Great picnic and rock climbing potential along the way. The Old Penitentiary, administered by the Idaho State Historical Society, is a wonderful place to investigate. Tours and info available year-round, across the street from the guard house."

This I would say is a better hiking destination than a mountain biking one, but it will challenge most riders with it's climb. It's also not just one trail but a small network so you can ride it a few times and take different routes to the top and back down. It does get a bit crowded on the weekends.
