With so many trails to choose from, if you can't find one to suit you, you aren't trying. There are plenty of family-friendly trails, too, even with little kids. The people we met along the way were all friendly - no friction between those on foot and those on bikes. Take some time and go for a walk!

What a great place to hike and trail run. We enjoyed a few miles before seeing anyone and the vistas were amazing.

This trail system is so extensive that you could walk for days -- over the foothills, up into the mountains, back down to the City of Trees, from one side of town to the other. What a delight to have so many trails so easily accessible from town!

The trail systems in and around Boise are fantastic. It is amazing to see two-lane bike paths as wide as a one lane street. The property taxes in Idaho are a little higher than most states, but unlike most others, Idaho actually spends their money on projects that really do benefit the public. Streets are clean, bike paths are everywhere,... More

Wander miles and miles of great trails up into the high desert of Boise. Great for walking or mountain biking...every year the park system extends the paths and it's just minutes from downtown.

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.
