Beautiful place to take a jog,rollerblade or ride a bike. In the fall you can smell the water and trees mix together harmonously. I highly recommend it. I had the priveledge of going on this greenbelt while attending Boise State University which is next to the greenbelt.
Probably the most lucrative feature of boise.. I can access green belt right from my home . It was one if the main reasons I took my apartment. The green belt is good for all ages , for walk, run or biking.. You can leisurely enjoy or do serious exercise. The trail will go by boise river and go till lucky peak touching Anne Morrison , Julia Davis , warm springs park. If you are lucky you can meet deers, coyotes on the trail late in the day. It is less crowded Julia Davis to lucky peak. It is heavily crowded from glen wood to. Julia Davis .
I ride the green belt to work from the Eagle area at least 3 to 4 times a week to downtown Boise. It's a great ride paved all the way ,,, just few area have roots coming up ( mostly in the Garden City area), but a great ride along the river, have seen all kinds of wildlife along the way . My wife and I Aldo ride it on the weekends,, always enjoyable .
Thomas L. on Boise River Greenbelt Trail
Nearly all paved. Some stretches with root-heaving of pavement. Nice country and city stretches, relatively level. Busy with pedestrians and bikes within city, but few to the west and east of that. Basically on streets from Eagle Island Park (west end) to trail near Eagle Road. Then follows the Boise River through Garden City (with minor street detours), through downtown Boise (past parks, zoo, museums) to the open country east of there. I enjoyed the round trip from Meridian (total of 54 miles) at age 70. Over-all a pleasant ride with considerable variation in surroundings. Easy access, with parking, many places for those who want to do short sections.
