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

The valley around Boise holds something like one third of Idaho's human population, so true outdoor experiences should be hard to find. But the foothills make it possible for one to leave the urban rush and just enjoy a quiet time apart. Trails and trail heads are clearly marked and maps to the trail system are available locally.

Very few cities have such an awesome trail system so close! Great for hiking and biking of all levels. Some trails along creeks, others more sparce but with awesome views. You could hike or bike in these foothills along time without getting bored.

well marked trail from near the idaho botanical gardens up to the cross on the top of table rock, intermediate to a little more difficult, but well worth the work-out for spectacular views of downtown Boise and surrounding area. Anywhere from one hour (steady walking) to ??? Take water for you and your dog. Crowded on week end mornings. Enjoy

I don't claim to have ridden or hiked a large portion of trail systems in the US but have certainly been on my fair share, at least in the Western US. I can say the Ridge to River System is one of the finest networks of trails I've come across, especially right on the door step of a major city.... More

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.
