To be honest, I don't know what actually goes on at the depot. Yeah, there are train tracks, but I don't think anyone actually uses them. But, from what I've done up there, I love it. First off, I took a ton of senior pictures up there, and they were great. From an overlooking the city picture to many around the various rocks and ponds, they all looked great. We also went up there for prom. Another great photo op, another great memory. Regardless of what you do there, it's a great vantage point of Boise, and quite fun for free.
