I look forward to this adventure everytime I visit Boise in the summer! The water is cold but the float is so relaxing. If you have small children, they wear life preservers and you can either take or rent an inflatable raft. Beautiful view of...More

You can walk, ride your bike, all along the Boise River, right in the middle of a city of about 250,000 people. Then there's the fishing and if you're in to that don't forget the fly-fishing or light spinning gear. Go to the Idaho Angler...More

My morning walk with my family of the Greenbelt was certainly one of my highlights while in Boise. It is extremely beautiful and peaceful. Very easy to walk, run or bike with plenty of room in the trail for everyone.

On a quick weekend visit to nearby Meriddian for a family birthday party celebration I was looking for a place to spend a few hours outdoors prior to the party. Wow, the Boise River Greenbelt offered a multitude of options to get out in nature...More
