The greenbelt runs along the scenic Boise river for "miles and miles" providing year round activities for visitors and locals alike. Walking, jogging, running, skating, boarding and biking are all every day activities on the greenbelt. It is a great venue for bird watching and in the winter you may see a bald eagle perched while watching the river for... More

Varied scenery along the Boise River. Family friendly. Easy walking trail. Not a big attraction during the winter months.

Wife and I enjoyed a 13 mile run along the Boise and after the run walked several additional miles to BSU to see the famous blue turf.

No matter the weather it is a relaxing walk or bike ride through Boise, over and under roads so no car traffic. The wildlife is good along the greenbelt. I Particularly like the path between Ann Morrison Park and the MK Nature Center.

The 25-mile Boise River Greenbelt is one of Boise's beloved treasures. The tree-lined pathway follows the river through the heart of the city. Enjoy scenic views, wildlife habitat and pedestrian access to the city's popular riverside parks. In the heat of the summer you will find many locals floating down the river in rafts that can be rented if you... More

My husband and I have walked the Boise river Greenbelt from end to end twice now (not all at one time, but over the summer) and we love it. There is always something to see while walking and you can stop and fish if you wish. Everyone who uses the greenbelt, for walking, biking, running or letting their dogs swim... More

Walking, running, biking or even just sitting along the Boise River Greenbelt seems to take you into a rural place in your mind. Yes, you still hear the traffic, but the river is soothing & time spent there is rejuvenating.

The Greenbelt is a treasure in the Boise Valley! Walking, biking, bird watching ...it is wonderful. It is accessible and follows the Boise River. You could even drop a fishing line in there and catch some great trout!

We use the Greenbelt year round. It's a wonderful way to get out on a sunny winter day for a brisk walk. And in the spring, summer and fall, the options are many on the Greenbelt. Where do you want to start? How far do you want to go? Which bridge do you want to go over? The Boise River... More
