City Creek Trail System

City Creek Trail System provides approximately 50 miles of exceptional hiking and riding trails within the Pocatello city limits. Managed by the City, this fantastic resource is utilized by hikers, horseback riders, mountain bikers, off road vehicles, and dog walkers. The main City Creek Trail gains almost 1,000 feet in elevation from the Grant Street Parking Lot to the last connection with City Creek Road. While the difficulty level of this trail system is graded with the “average” hiker or rider in mind, beginners should use caution since even the “easy” trails require some skill and fitness. Additionally, several fantastic “loops” can be followed stemming off of the main trail along City Creek such as the “prison loop” which is a combination of the Bench, Prison, Bump, Serengeti, Sullivans, and Mushroom Trails.

Please stay on trails and respect the natural beauty of this valuable watershed. Much of the CCMA also supports a wide variety of wildlife including sharptailed grouse, mule deer, and moose making it
important to tread lightly and abide by the CCMA trail use rules and guidelines. Because of this, the entire CCMA is designated as a conservation area and any additional activity (trail building or maintenance, events, etc.) must be coordinated via the City of
Pocatello as defined in the CCMA Road and Trail Management Plan.
To get the most out of your trail experience, please clean up after your pet. Visit Website

    We Got Lost!

    We got lost trying to find it - ended up with a quick walk in the middle of nowhere...

    Great Hike

    I enjoy hiking there with my dogs, but too many people let their dogs run free. This wouldn't be a problem, but not all owners control their dogs well. I keep mine leashed to prevent problems; I just wish others would do the same.

    Close hiking

    It's great to be able to go hiking so close to town. It is also one of the first hikes to be accessible after our long winters. It is shady most of the way and follows a little stream which provides a lovely sound as you hike.

    City Creek Trail System

    Awesome place for dog jogs. 50 miles of great trails in the local mountains. Plenty of watering holes along the creek bed for the pups to get a drink or a quick dip.
