  • The park is a great place to just hang out as well as use as a starting point for a hike. There are so many trails that intersect nearby, you are bound to find one that works for you.

  • Nice view of the city from the top after a short climb up via stairs or graduated unpaved trail. Childrens play area and outdoor fitness equipment at the park at the bottom. Near to Hyde Park.

  • It's an annual pre-first day of school tradition to climb to the top of Camel's Back with my daughters and watch the sunrise on the last day of Summer Vacation. Today was a little smoky and hazy, but as always, the view was gorgeous. I'm always struck by the contrast of the lushly verdant treetop panorama that fills 180° arc as it's juxtaposed against the high desert flora of the opposing 180° view, with it's flaxen hair of dry grass and punctuating wildflowers and sage. It is a view that is, to me, quintessentially Boise.
  • Great park with trails at all difficulties. We went as our family of 5. Our 5 year old and 3 year old was able to make the climb up the steep stairs on their own while I wore our 7 month old son. Beautiful view of the valley even on an overcast day.
