5 Mile and Orchard Gulch Loop is a great hike in the Boise Foothills. This loops is little further away from downtown Boise, thus it is not nearly as crowded. That said, expect some people however. Along the way hikers should watch for raptors which are often observed hunting prey from the skies above. This trail is a great way to get outside for an evening hike and still be home in time to catch the news. This trail is kid, dog, mountain bike and equestrian friendly.
