Hiking to Stack Rock in the Boise Foothills
Trail to Stack Rock, also known as Entrance Exam, will re-open to the public on weekends only beginning Saturday.
The trail has been closed since early June because of a logging operation on private land. It will re-open full time when the logging is completed.
The trail is the most direct route to Stack Rock Reserve, a popular destination below Bogus Basin. Most of the trail system around Stack Rock is part of the Ridge to Rivers system. The Trail to Stack Rock, however, is managed by the Land Trust of the Treasure Valley through an agreement with private land owners.
The logging operation aims to combat invasive mistletoe and beetle infestations, Land Trust Executive Director Tim Breuer said in a press release. The owners plan to reforest the area, he said.
The 2-mile Trail to Stack Rock begins near mile marker 13 on Bogus Basin Road and connects to the top of Sweet Connie.
