Table Rock’s 3.7-mile loop trail is a popular choice for hikers, dog walkers, and horse riders. Moderately challenging, the trail takes an average of about 2 hours to complete, leading you to some of the most breathtaking views of Boise and the Treasure Valley.
The trailhead is conveniently located near the Old Idaho Penitentiary, and free parking is available. Table Rock welcomes visitors from sunrise to sunset daily, with the entrance gate closing at sunset but reopening for exiting vehicles. For a mesmerizing sunset experience, take the Old Pen’s side trail, as private trails and the access road to the top close one hour before sunset. To keep the trail in good condition, it’s recommended to wait a few days to hike after a rainy or snowy day to avoid muddy conditions that could damage the trail.
