Does the "Boise Trail" even exist anymore?
I'm very close to completing a cover to cover peak bag of 103 Hikes 5th edition, but one of my last hikes to do is the "Boise Trail" (#31).
Back in 2009 I managed to get myself via 4x4 to the trailhead but we could find nothing worth following after several attempts and I imagine it is only more overgrown now, which is why I'm assuming it didn't appear in the 6th edition.
Now, I tend to have better luck with tough trails (and better tools for the job) and wayfinding skills and have no problem bushwhacking for long stretched (within reason), BUT I'm assuming that like most Western Canada Wilderness Committee trails once the area has been preserved,... this one has been abandoned, is not maintained,.. and basically not hikable. [u]Does anyone have any information to the contrary?[u]</u>
Long story short, in my own rulebook for peak bagging the book, I will substitute a trail (same area, same similar stats) if a trail is either dangerous, or just heavily inaccessible due to neglect on (for more that just a few isolated areas like washouts). Your input welcome!
