“Views and burning quads abound on this trail.”— Seth McFarland
This climb is part of the Boise Grand Slam (Kepros Mountain, Cervidae Peak, Shaw Mountain). It's a perfect early spring warm-up when there is still snow in the higher elevations. Some of the early sections are extremely steep and the hard packed dirt and loose rocks make for a tricky ascent.
Overall, this can be a great out-and-back workout with very nice views.
