Very nice! There were bikers, joggers, dogs, walkers, and rafters along the trail. Most of the path is paved. The river is very fast moving but there were several places we found with a spot to dip our feet in the river.

If you're so inclined, you can actually ride this 27 miles. Some of the loveliest stretches, though, are right in town along the river. On a hot day, the cool breeze off the river is a welcome respite.

What a great gem in Boise! Who knew that this greenway stretched 30 miles and was so well taken care of! Definitely a reason to consider travel to Boise!

It's a wonderful place to walk, run, bike, explore! It's beautiful all year round and with so many trails there's lots to see. We love the greenbelt so much!

The Greenbelt is the flowing heart of Boise- covered in every tree imaginable (but no snozzberries, Mr. Wonka), with cyclists, rollerbladers, skaters, walkers, dogs, and geese...yes, geese. There are a LOT of geese on certain sections of the Greenbelt, so if you like blurring around blind corners on rollerblades or your bike, you may earn yourself a mouthful of feathers.... More

Downtown Boise along their Boise River hike and parks provides an excellent way to relax for the day. Take your time, picnic at a number of picnic tables along their park system, and we enjoyed feeding hundreds of Canadian Honker geese that congregate in a couple of areas along their ponds......we love the creatures. Don't forget to dip your toes... More

We happened on this by chance on a Friday evening and our kids wished that they had time to float down the river but we were able to really enjoy taking a walk through the area and seeing the Anne Frank Humanitarian educational exhibit.

It was fun we rented bicycles at our hotel and road down to Tower lake and back to the Ann Morrison park. Visited the Ann Frank memorial which is in construction but much is there and wonderful quotes to read.
