Rode from Donnelly over the west mountains, then did new meadows to council same day (Great food at Sprockets in council). Rode from council to Weiser second day (Breakfast at OH Honey was awesome), would recommend 2" or larger tires, lots of chicken head rock on the trail and some moderately sandy sections. Super fun ride, lots of wild life, Owls, herons, egrets, deer, coyote, massive piles of bear scat on the trail. Section from midvale was hot and exposed, bring lots of water and sunscreen!
What a pleasant surprise. We were camping along Cascade Lake and found this trail. We rode our bikes leisurely along the old train bed through the woods which often emerged with grand lake views. The grade rose slowly along then you notice the land dropped off on both sides of the trail—like a land bridge. Lots of wildflowers. Just wonderful.
While camping at Lake Cascade we were looking for someplace to ride our bikes and found this trail. It starts out on top of what appears to be a levee along the Payette River. It’s fairly level so and easy hike or ride. We went along some trailer homes then the trail opened up into the wilderness. We rode along the river then came to some rapids that were part of a white water park. Not crowded.
Just my grandson and I on a working vacation. I haul my e-bike so I had to rent him one. Middle of trail is the Payette brewery. Sunrise e-bike rentals are in there building. We rented a e-bike for him. Also rafting rentals available. Definitely a busy trail for a weekday. But still got around ok. We did most all of trail except long outer ends. Part of trail is adjacent to Boise College and stadium. Minimum 2 hours for sure. For sure
I am from Tucson looking for paved non-street rides. Greenbelt is fabulous, but: 1) The route west really ends at Eagle road regardless of what some maps indicate; 2) Ambiguous signage can confuse out-of-towners (like me!).
We rode from north trail head to Cambridge - 44 miles. This is a true rail trail - an old railroad bed in some places dirt, some gravelish, some bumpy, some deeper gravel. North to south is downhill, but you pedal the entire way. We loved the trail, but were definitely beat at the end. Do not underestimate the effort per mile. Scenery is terrific - woods at the beginning, scenic prairie and canyons toward the end. Take lots of water and spare tubes. You pass several towns, but alot is remote without cell service, and services are slim. We used Weiser Shuttle Service - highly recommend.
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.
We had 2 kids: age 3 year old (with training wheels) and 5 year old with us. We only biked in 2 miles in and out. We took a break on a sandy beach. Felt like a hidden gem. We will be back for sure for more riding as the kids get older so we can complete the section.
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.
A lot of rough trail, would highly recommend at least fork suspension. Also a lot of total cell black zones, so have backup navigation and communication option if you’re worried. Long stretches are completely isolated and road is inaccessible, so if you need medical assistance or have a break down, it can be a long walk. Great variety of scenery, and all the small towns the trail passes through are good for an hour’s investigation and/or a meal, particularly in Midvale. Having just done the entire trail, I’d recommend Fruitvale to Tamarack and back for by far the best bang for your buck.
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.
