We rode 15 miles on this paved bike trail that runs along the Boise River. It was flat, well marked and had great Mountain and River views. Great for families to get out and exercise. Not strenuous at all.

Nice path to stroll or ride a bike along the river!

Beautiful scenery and loved the river. However, did not find out dogs needed to be on leashes until we got there, so we got to stay for all of ten minutes. Tags for this trail need to be updated. Or if there is a part where dogs can go off leash, directions there or a mention in the description would have been nice.

Trail is great! I specifically use this trail to bike to Lucky Peak. It's a fun ride along to Boise river and pass along points of interests like Boise zoo, Boise state, Body Building.com outdoor gym, Etc.

Green belt is a good walking, running and biking path. Good stretch and good for family. Many activities include swimming, rafting, paddleboards, and fishing. Great for the family.

This trail is super easy for adults as well as for kids. So much to see and do and it's so close to downtown Boise just in case you need to grab some food or in case of emergency.

Great hike/bike along a pathway that lines the Boise River. It's amazing how close to the wilderness you feel even when you're smack in the heart of boise.

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.

This is a great trail for a jog or an easy leisurely walk. I love the different and beautiful scenery you can enjoy while on this trail. Perfect for any time of the year.

The Greenbelt is awesome (with the exception of the sections in Garden City that are not being properly maintained). It allows you to easily get from downtown to most areas of Boise. It also provides excellent access to fishing.

The Boise Greenbelt is one of the best features Boise has to offer. Whether it's enjoying the changing colors in the fall, or getting a morning jog in during the summer, it offers so much beauty and recreation for the entire Boise area.

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 .

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.
