Enjoy spectacular mountain flowers and views along the Upper Dry Creek trail system from the Interpretive Loop trailhead at the lower edge of the conifer forest, 2500 feet above the Boise Valley heat. This is the quickest driving access to a hike in the conifers for most residents of Boise, with the least carbon footprint. In addition to penstemon and other showy floral treasures, special treats of this wildflower walk include two native (albeit inconspicuous) orchids and several types of parasitic plants.Milepost-12
