Always lovely to stroll or ride along the Greenbelt. Love the way Boise makes the most of this natural resource!

We ran the Onward Shay! Marathon/Half Marathon, which was entirely on the Greenbelt path. So NO motorized vehicles to have to dodge (except the rare park service carts, and one short segment adjacent to a golf course, with a couple of carts crossing the path)....More

We enjoyed walking the Greenbelt while visiting Boise and Boise state university. The Greenbelt appeared to be clean and well maintained. We had our dog with us and it was a nice wide path for him and walkers and bike riders to share.

Be SURE to allow time to ENJOY this gem of an opportunity. Summer swimming, picnics, bike rides, and long walks. Several options for coffee, wine, snacks and more.

There are certainly rattle snakes in Southern Idaho, but I've never heard of or seen any along the common pathways. No problem if you were to see one, just go around it. Yes, it is very safe to sit along the waters edge... More

Look up Boise Green Bikes. They have several stations to pick up and drop off bicycles. They have an app to help find available bikes in town.

I can't name any specific companies but you can get kayaks and float tubes and just look it up when you get there. There are plenty. Really hot now, 104F. Take lots of sunscreen.
