Nice hike

This little stroll is a refreshing getaway from the city. Not real aesthetic yet quiet. Pretty easy walk, could be challenging for bike.

One of the best trail systems in the country, with over 200 miles of trails there is something for everyone.

Bikes, horses (haven't seen any yet) walkers, runners, dogs, dogs dog people! It has such varied landscape, varied degrees of trails, and never seems busy. Even when I was on the trails on a Sunday (at it's... More

Rented bikes and rode for hours, beautiful setting and very good paths. We are frequent riders, but decided to get cruisers and that was a good choice - very flat, casual riding.

This is a nice, well done trail in the heart of Boise. The trail is quite easy for a hiker, with some hills, nothing extreme. Go early in the morning on hot days as there isn't shade!

I love getting out on the trails. Whether it's just for an hour or for 4, you feel calmer and more relaxed.

We have countless great trails to hike/bike in Boise. Get a Ridge to River map as you will need it since we have so many trails. They are all well maintained and cherished by all that use them.

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.

This is a great system of trails that even though it is right near downtown Boise feels like you are truly in nature. Loved exploring all the well marked trails. Especially enjoyed Table Rock. It was a short hike but worked up a sweat and the view from the top was worth it. Just watch out for mountain bikers on... More

This trail system is amazing. The trails are well taken care of. What is great is if you need a climbing day on the bike there are trails that will set your legs on fire but if you are looking for speed there is a good amount of fun downhill trails as well.
