The Polecat loop - Boise foothills hike

A lovely late spring evening in the rolling hills above Boise. Participated in an evening hike with the Boise TrailHeads meetup group. The trailhead is located about 3 miles up Cartwright road on the left.

Sixteen adventures took off around 6:30 for a brisk walk around on the shorter Polecat loop. We climbed a bit for the first quarter mile and stayed relatively level while winding in and out of various gullies and ridgelines.

We had a peek a view sighting of the Treasure Valley bathed under the waning sun albeit a tad hazy.

Good company all around; had a chance to meet several new folks.

Finished off the evening with a tasty pint of Fiegwild at Highlands Hollow brewpub at the base of Bogus Basin road.
