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.

Awesome trail system. Great learning center for kids and families. I always take my dog here and we have a great time. You can go and never take the same trail twice. It's such a beautiful experience.

As a runner, I use the ridge to rivers trails often. They are easily accessible, offer miles of trails for runners, mountain bikers, and equestrians alike (I have even seen a trail unicycle!). The hills also challenge your legs and lungs. the scenes are always changing with the seasons and the soft ground is easy on your joints. Dogs are... More

Good parking, doggy bags, delightful streams and wonderful view of downtown Boise. You'll ascend enough of an elevation gain to work your heart but then it's all ridge and gentle downhill with magnificent views of the treasure valley and about the closest overlook of the skyscrapers in the heart of downtown Boise. I've done it for years every Sunday, and... More

Well maintained, varied terrain for all levels of riders, hikers, and runners. Muddy when it rains so best in dry weather.

Ridge to Rivers trail systems is amazing! There are more trails than I ever imagined. It's nice you can start a hike out in the same spot but because there are so many options you can do a completely different hike each time. We enjoyed the FootHills Frenzy this past year on these trails.
