“Climb Shaw Mountain, a.k.a. Lucky Peak, to train for summer peak-bagging and backpacking.”— Peggy Jordan
Family Friendly About one mile from the trailhead is an abandoned homestead to explore. It's very easy to reach, even for little ones.
As of fall 2015 there is construction going on near the trailhead, so the first mile or so to the old homestead is not so pleasant. After the construction however, the view opens up and you begin to leave the noise of Boise behind.
About one hour from the trailhead you'll reach the junction with the Highland Valley Road trail. Take a left to continue on to the top of Shaw Mountain.
