It's worth the climb up the face of Camel's Back Park for the views of the Capitol and Downtown Boise.
The top of Camel's Back is a cool place to sit and watch the sunset or look at the fall colors throughout the neighborhoods.
Hey, we're not talking about a trek in the remote mountains. This is a casual lunchtime stroll or after-work run.
I like to walk to the top of the hill this time of the year specifically because of the fall colors.
Pack a lunch or grab a pizza on the go after work and eat it on top. It's just one of those cool things about Boise.
