For an alpine hike that features wildflowers in summer and colorful foliage in autumn, consider this nature trail in the Boise National Forest, 4 miles beyond the entry to Bogus Basin Mountain Recreation Area. The trail offers a bounty of sensory experiences and magnificent views of the valley and the distant mountain ranges. Start by walking on a portion of the Mores Mountain Interpretive Trail. The trail sends hikers past two boulder-strewn granite outcroppings with wide-open vistas, including Shafer Butte (7,582 feet elevation). The 1.0-mile interpretive loop trail leads through meadows of purple, yellow, white, and red wildflowers; the middle loop trail leads to an overlook. Both connect with the end of the outer loop trail.
