Red Cliffs

Red Cliffs is a great trail that tests handbikers with it’s climbs and turns. It starts from Lower Hulls Gultch trail and finishes when it hits Crestline in the Boise foothills. Max pitch is 15 degrees and there are 2 sections that get dry slick in the August heat and are difficult to climb unassisted. But it can be done! The rewards for climbing this trail are the views and the downhill. Cut out of the sidehill, Red Cliffs is technical and curvy! Many corners through the sagebrush are blind, therefore caution should be taken to be careful of oncoming traffic.
