I've both hiked and mountain biked several sections of the Ridge to River Trail System, from the 8th St Extension area to as far SE as Lucky Peak. It's wonderful that paths are maintained where both hikers and mountain biker's can co-exist so peacefully. Several sections provide great views over Boise and Treasure Valley.

Everything from slow rollers to butt puckerers! this trail system is one of the best I've used in an urban area. Park in any number of improved lots and the trail heads are just across the lot. Ride for 15 minutes or all day and never see the same trail or terrain twice. Go down into the flats to ride... More

The trails in the foothills of Boise are so easy to access. There are several areas and having the Ridge to Rivers map is necessary to keep from getting off on the wrong trail. We love hiking up here spring, summer and fall. There is a big push to keep hikers and bikes off the trails when they are muddy... More

Great place to walk the dog. Always wildlife to see. Today we saw a fairly large coyote on the hunt. Trails are well marked, but this time of year there can be muddy and soft spots.

There are no mountain bike specific trails. Other cities are on board with this idea, but not Boise. What a shame! We all get in each other's way because there are no trails just for bikes. Get with the program Boise!

I love that there is easy access to foothill trail systems, just outside of Boise. We loved taking a morning run through the CamelBack trails, and a morning hike up TableRock. So much fun! Nothing I didn't like about this.

This trail is amazing. Great for running, especially with all the fall colors. It was wonderful to see people using the trail.

I've hiked extensively in Oregon, Arizona and Idaho and as far as municipal hiking systems go this is the best. Trails are very well maintained and generally in good condition (except for the Spring snow-melt). If you like a long hike, try the Hard Guy Trail. Being in Idaho, the vast number of people using these trails are friendly and... More

The 8th Street ATV trail should be removed from this trail system. There is two-way traffic and the path is too narrow to safely allow an ATV and another person, little lone another ATV. The trail is cut into the side of the hill so backing up, or getting off the trail to allow one to pass can be dangerous... More
