You will pass a golf... More

The Greenbelt is very easy to get to, and has great biking conditions. Beautiful scenery with the river and its critters. We even saw a group of deer right in front of us! So cool

Very pleasant scenic trail. Great for walking, jogging, or biking. The only complaint is of the duck poop that is all over the pavement in most parts of the trail.

The Boise River Greenbelt system consists of miles of paved and graveled paths. Two special paths are designated "bike free" zones and are safe for toddlers, strollers, wheel chairs and for those with walking assistance devices. Both of these paths are uneven and someone should assist those with poor balance. The Bethine Church path is on the south side of... More

You can walk, run, bike, or rollerblade the whole length or just a section. In town it can get a little congested but East of the city is the best part, all the way to Lucky Peak.

The green belt has great views, and t trails are well kept and rounding around roads or under roads making it easy to get in distance.

The Boise River Greenbelt is an awesome place to walk, run or bike! Much of the Greenbelt runs along the Boise River and through the heart of downtown Boise with local attractions, restaurants and parks along the way!

The Greenbelt follows the Boise River for miles, from the Lucky Peak Dam all the way into the huge parks in downtown Boise. It's shady and cool, and goes right through some of the coolest parts of the city. It's great for fishing, dipping your feet in the water, birdwatching, and just enjoying the sounds and smells.

Boise's Greenbelt stretches for over 20 miles along the clean and cool Boise River, providing great jigging, biking, walking, hiking, swimming and fishing opportunities.
