The trail system in the Boise Foothills are for all levels of bikers and hikers. Not a lot of trees, but spectacular views of the valley.

We visited Boise in March 2017 and hiked the Ridge to River Trail System every day. There are trails and allow dogs off leash and we hiked for several hours each day. We plan to return on our next visit!

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