Boise Prioritizes Outdoor Activities with Ridge to River Trail System

This excellent trail system is one of the best things in Boise. Mountain Bike riding, hiking, birding, great vistas abound. We've had really pretty wildflowers this year.

Mountain biked from Hulls Gulch to Corrals up Scott's and over to Upper Dry Crek. This is an awesome system with more than a 100 miles of trails North of Boise and another 80 just up Hiway 55 in Avimor. If you like long open hard climbs with multiple options this is as good as it gets, The terrain rus... More

The Ridge to River Trail System is an intricate web of trails spanning the Boise foothills. I have done long, exhausting hikes with adults but also strolled the trails with my young children with ease. The beauty is that you can choose the trails that are best for what you have planned for the day. I love that I have... More

There are so many trails to get you up to the Table Rock plateau. You can also drive almost the entire way up and make a short walk to the bench that overlooks everything. If you are going to walk bring walking shoes; if you are going to drive up and then walk to the concrete bench/cross area just know... More

Boise is an incredibly clean, urban city without all the traffic. The river trail is awesome and there bikes you can rent by the day, or the month!

I enjoyed the close proximity to the city but also once on the trail it seemed as though none else was remotely close to me. It was very quite and peaceful and a great way to spend my morning with just myself and nature.

There are so many trails to enjoy and you can get most everywhere from them. Trails are well maintained and MOST dog owners pick up the mess.

Boise is a great place overall with many great things. However, the trail system is really what makes Boise the place it is. There are 3 major access points only minutes from downtown and easily accessible: Table Rock, Military Reserve, and Camelsback Park. For hiking, I highly recommend Table Rock. About 1/2 way up, take trail #17 to go around... More
