Shafter Butter Picnic Area Date Climbed: Sep 17, 2006
First time going up here to actual summit. Very nice fall day, with a little snow left here and there from friday night. With the rain/snow the air was much clearer than it has been with all the fires.
Nice little set of trails near Boise. Try biking the back trails in the summer (stay off the interpretive trails). You can access them from anywhere - 8th street, Rocky Canyon, Bogus Basin, the ridge road and make the trip as long as you want.
