Boise, Idaho Map

A well marked trail with gentle elevation changes that highlights the local environment. It would be a great trail run but I did this as a hike. There were some mountain bikers on the trail but everyone was friendly and respectful

Super easy and quick hike. And only barely a ten minute drive from downtown. So beautiful. Hands down recommend, especially for those in and out of Boise quickly for a work trip or something.

Great dog walking path!

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.

A lot of mtn bike traffic. Decent climbs and views. The section along the road sucks. More of a trail for a quick run near Boise than one that is worthwhile for hiking and sightseeing.

Easy, wide trail, some hills, but overall a “moderate” trail. Disappointed to see so much logging in one stretch, but overall a really nice walk. There are more trails in the area that AllTrails hasn’t mapped - but fairly well marked to find your way.

Beautiful fall day, temp about 65 or so, leaves changing in the gulch bottom. Well marked, moderate trail in my book, but my first hike in the Boise area, so well worth it as an afternoon hike - relatively easy pace, 2.5 hours.
