The trail is super easy and perfect for anyone wanting to take a nice walk, run, or ride bikes around the path. The main part goes around the center of town but there is an additional portion of the trail that heads towards Freeman Veterans Memorial park. That’s my favorite part.

Nice walking trail through town. Use friendship park with caution; seems to be the local homeless encampment.

Took my time going on this 3 mile loop from the hotel along the Snake River, past the LDS, and back along the falls. Beautiful, flat, easy run, but very hot (90F) at 4:30pm.

Keep in mind, this isn’t a hike, but a walk. A very nice walk though. It can be broken down into segments as short as 1 mile which makes it nice.

All you really need to know is this is a nice trail you can take your kids and grandma on. If you want a more detailed overview keep reading. This trail is paved so I was able to push my stroller the entire way. I also saw littles on scooters. There are a lot of runners, bikers and long boarders that use the trail. It’s very popular. There are geese and ducks along the whole trail. Currently it is the beginning of May and they all have their little goslings with them. We saw a group of 21 goslings! They are so fun to see but their poop is eeeeevvverywhere. So PSA don’t walk in the grass haha. This is a dog friendly trail. On the east side there are a lot of doggie bag stations. There are bathrooms on both sides and working water fountains. There are fun, artistic benches around the trail that my kids loved along with picnic tables. There are also informational and memorial plaques along the way. We enjoyed looking at the Veteran’s Memorial. The trail takes you right past the Idaho Falls Temple and partially through historic downtown district. There are also plenty of places to eat at the south end. I’d say the only complaint I had was that the bridge at the North end is right next to a highway so we got sprayed with dirt when a semi drove past.

I like this trail on my bike. I start at Ryder Park and end at Freeman Park it makes for some good exercise. Sometimes there’s a good amount of people congestion around the falls but for the most part I can ride as fast and hard as I want. I usually don’t take the floating bridge as I feel riding down Fremont and turning on Higman makes for a longer route. You’re riding along the river for most of this trail. And if you get tired there’s plenty of grass along the river to lay down on!

Always an enjoyable stroll with the serene sound of the falls as your background soundtrack. Lots of shady tree cover and colorful flowers in the summertime. The Japanese Garden is especially lovely.

The section of the trail that goes under Highway 20 is closed for the winter. I couldn’t find an easy alternative over the highway so ended up running back to my car at Freeman park and driving to park along Memorial Dr. to meet back up with the trail. Just an FYI for anyone else not as familiar with the area! Aside from that, it’s a great trail and you can easily get some good miles in! It’s easy to follow and keeps you away from traffic.
