Family loves this walk.

Boise River Greenbelt

fun for the fam

August, 2023 by rick360

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

Boise River Greenbelt

Great Ride (Just Watch Walkers!)

March, 2023 by kmmcmillen

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!).

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.

Stoddard Pathway

Stoddard Pathway.

July, 2022 by leecordon

The pathway has been extended. It is at least three miles long now. Also it connects to Wilson Pathway which can extend it several more miles.

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.

A very nice walk. Great for all walking levels.

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.
