Mores Mountain Loop
Upper Boise Front Range, north of Bogus Basin Ski Area. Mores mountain is one of the few peaks in the Boise Range that rises above 7,000 feet in elevation. The summit of this ride is about 6,600 feet, but the pedestrian-only nature loop will take you to the top. There are beautiful, high lupine meadows near the summit and some interesting rock crags (climbing-quality, even). The steep, singletrack section of this ride is a wonderful mix of rocks, humps, and granitic sand. If you ride from the other direction, the difficult crux sections are half as difficult. There are at least a half-dozen granite spires that greet you along this trail, not counting the domes, hoodoos, and buttresses that surprise you along the way. It is a short sprint, so if you are going to drive all that way to get there (many sprocketheads will pedal the approach) you might as well take advantage of one of the area's many available tangents.
