So many people live here and fall in love with Boise because of the ease of access to the outdoors. My wife and I are lucky enough to live 100 feet from a trail access point and we find ourselves out on the trails several days per week. This is definitely one of the highlights of Boise and as the city expands I hope the area continues to be protected from over development. It would be a shame to lose this wonderful resource.

It is worth spending some time walking a trail on this system but without trees or real height it is not a repeat worthy visit for a tourist....but for a local it would be a nice daily exercise trail system.

The Tablerock trail in the East Boise foothills is a great trail. It is a very popular and safe trail. It is fairly steep, but I saw all ages and abilities hike this trail. There isn't a lot of shade, so go on the trail when it is cooler. The view of Boise is fantastic, especially at sunset.

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

The Ridge to River Trail System is quite impressive. I enjoyed walking all day following it around the city of Boise.

The Ridge to Rivers tria system in Boise is heaven for Mountain Bikers, Hikers and runners. Easily accessible, well maintained and marked, this system provided access to the foothills of Boise with great views and an abundance of trails for varying skill sets.

The Table Rock Section of the Boise Ridge to River trail system is a short but somewhat steep hike behind the Old Penitentiary and Botanical Gardens off of Warm Springs in East Boise.

This is a full sun, no available water hike, so plan accordingly. Some people jog or ride their mountain bikes (wow!) while the rest of us just hike. There were people of all ages hiking, but I do not recommend taking small children unless you want to carry them for the majority of the hike. If you take your dog, please, please please take extra water.

I would classify this as a moderate hike, if you are in shape. Difficult, if you are not. The steepness is a factor. The elevation gain is almost 1000 ft, but the view is worth it. At the top, there are several buildings painted by aspiring street artists. Take a moment and check them out.

I would definitely recommend hiking boots for stability. The loop took me about 1 and 1/2 hrs.

There was a large high school group hiking at the time and about 3/4 up the hill I asked a couple of the guys what they thought of the hike - if they thought it was easy, moderate, or hard. Their answer was, "moderate with a few rest breaks."

For those of us who live in Boise, the Ridge to River Trail system is one of the best features for an outdoor lifestyle. Miles of running, hiking and biking trails throughout the foothills and along the Boise river. We are so fortunate

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!

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.
