Table Rock trails reopened after fire

Trails around Table Rock were back open Tuesday after a fire last week led to their closure through the long Fourth of July weekend.

Table Rock trails reopened after fire

The 2,500-acre Table Rock fire was caused by fireworks late on the night of June 29.

Boise Parks and Recreation, in collaboration with the Ridge to Rivers partnership and the Idaho State Historical Society, reopened the trails to public access, informed officials Tuesday afternoon.

"We've had a chance to go in and make sure that there's no safety concerns," Foothills and Open Space Superintendent Sara Arkle said.

But there are some access restrictions in place to certain areas even now.

Homestead Trail in the Boise River Wildlife Management Area is closed until further notice and vehicle access is prohibited to the top of Table Rock for now.

"Our number one concern is to make sure people stay on designated trails," Arkle further said. "This is a vulnerable area that has recently burned. We want to ensure that native habitat can restore itself."
