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

so many trails it's hard to choose, sort of depends on the mood I'm in. I'm a runner so getting up high in the hills provides a new outlook when you are looking out over the city surrounded by trees and nature. It's definitely my zen therapy! Any trails that leave from Camel's Back with get you a variety of... More

We rode the majority of this trail. Mostly flat with many shady areas. Its fun to see the giraffes as you ride by the zoo. You also get a taste of the BSU campus and lots of river views. Towards the end you can stop and watch the white water park action.

The Ridge to River Trail System is quite impressive. I enjoyed walking all day following it around the city of Boise.

This is an extensive path system that mainly runs around the foothills just to the north of Boise. We still have lots of area to cover, but what we have hiked has been beautiful (and tiring).

LOVE the trail system in and around Boise. Have enjoyed it on horseback, on foot with my dogs, and on a bike as well. This is a well maintained system and there are trails for everyone.
