Boise River Greenbelt

Beautiful Ride

August, 2022 by loraleecampbell

Although still some closed areas. We were able to progress to our destination without any issues. Path is crowded at times around college and water park.

Beautiful fun ride! Lots of people so at times slow going.

Boise River Greenbelt

lots of closed areas.

July, 2022 by jpprice1234

The green belt has so many closed areas and what is open is unpaved. We road in circles three times back to the beginning and started over to find a way up the river but with all the construction and new homes, private path signs, and construction vehicles we didn’t make it to our planned lunch spot. The map does not show the closures and new structures and fences that were in our way.

Boise River Greenbelt

The Boise River Greenbelt

January, 2021 by uwnkt6byyx

This is an incredible ride. The mostly paved path runs on both sides of the river in town with lots of stopping points. You’ll also find many parks offering great picnic stops, restrooms and bike tools. Plenty of entry points at the parks lining the river. Crowded in the summertime. Head east towards Lucky Peak Dam and it will thin out.

Boise River Greenbelt

vastly improved

June, 2020 by fgladics

Today in 2020 the various cities along the trail have made numerous improvements, added a number of parks and replace the bridges and trail segment damage in the flooding of 3 years ago. Today you can ride paved trail from Eagle Idaho all the way to Lucky Peak Dam to the east. The replacement of the bridge to Plantation Island is wonderful. And while the section in Garden City continue to have some rough areas, on the whole Garden City has done the most to improve the trail in their city. The replacement of the Plantation Islsnd bridge and pavement on the island is great. The new widening and resurfacing of the section from Plantation Island behind the former Le Bois horse track in nothing short of spectacular.

Boise River Greenbelt

what a difference two years make

June, 2020 by fgladics

Winter snows have been low. Spring rains have not been bad. New trail addition at west end of trail in Eagle is a great addition. While,as in the past, the Garden Valley section is the least enjoyable it is the most improved and it is clear the City of Garden Valley is working hard to upgrade the trail segments in their city. Perhaps the biggest hilighy is the the replacement ofPlsntation Islsnd bridge tole Bois horse racing facility.

Boise River Greenbelt

Most of the trail closed due to flooding

April, 2017 by fgladics

Record heavy snows and the resulting above average run off have closed most of the trail. As of April Only eastern most 9 miles remain open. Federal water managers predict above flood stage releases into June. Check City of Boise website for closure maps. A key bridge between Boise and Garden City has been removed to save it from falling in the river and park managers say it will have to be relocated. Thus when flooding subsides you will not be able to ride the trail from one end to the other non stop. When it dries out it is still a great trail you will have to ride part and find the detour around the missing bridge to continue on.

Boise River Greenbelt

Excellent trail

October, 2016 by daireemt

Rode this trail from Eagle all the way to Lucky Peak reservoir over 2 days in late September. A great experience overall. Suggestions would be for a bit better markings along the route, as the downtown areas can be a bit confusing and congested.
The only negative is a local weed called goatheads....nasty little things that resemble organic thumbtacks....flattened 3 of 4 tires late one afternoon. Advise you carry a tire pump!!

Boise River Greenbelt

Boise Greenbelt incomplete

July, 2015 by joahusa

Have been looking for a good map of the Boise Greenbelt, but this is not it, Yet. It is a good start but missing the trails that run on both sides. It could also add bathrooms, air pumps, water coolers along the way. It would also help to display mileage marks.

Indian Creek Greenbelt

not that great

Not impressed

Boise River Greenbelt

Incredible

December, 2013 by dmikeh

This is an amazing running, walking, cycling trail along the Boise River near downtown Boise, ID. If you are coming to Boise, bring your exercise gear. There are also plenty of mountainous (off road) running, hiking, mountain bike trails close to the Greenbelt, don't miss those! The beautiful scenery and wildlife will make you want to stay and never leave!
