Plan Your Visit

The Jim Hall Foothills Learning Center (JHFLC) is the perfect place to explore Boise's natural environment. Located minutes from downtown Boise, it is nestled in Hulls Gulch in the heart of the Boise Foothills with access to multiple trailheads, along with a self-guided interpretive trail and native plant garden. 

Take 8th Street north through Boise's North End. From the end of the pavement, travel 1/3 mile farther. You will find us on the right side of the road at 3188 Sunset Peak Road. Click here for a printable map of the JHFLC grounds.  For questions or more information, call 208-493-2530.

The building is open by reservation and when events are scheduled. We are closed for all national holidays. The Story Trail, self-guided interpretive trail, and surrounding Ridge to Rivers Trails are always open.
