This short hike provides a sample of the various trails in this area of the Ridge to Rivers Trail System. The Corrals Trail is shared with ranchers with grazing rights. This part of the trail system passes through a mixture of public and private land. During spring, summer, and autumn, wildflowers bloom along the trail among the bitterbrush and sagebrush. Springtime brings out the pink filaree creeper. In summer look for the yellow arrowleaf balsamroot, a member of the sunflower family. The steepest part of the hike is directly off the Miller Gulch trailhead parking area. Traverse the hillside, moving from 3,281 feet elevation to the plateau at 3,599 feet. Arriving at the saddle, the scenery opens up to include the Treasure Valley, with the Owyhee Mountains to the south, and the high peak of Shafer Butte in the Boise National Forest to the north. The remainder of the hike along the ridge encompasses broad views of the Boise Front and the capital city below.
