Family loves this walk.

Weiser River National Recreation Trail

September WRT plus Donnelly

September, 2023 by boe4570

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!

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!).

Weiser River National Recreation Trail

A true rail trail

August, 2022 by annmom1

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.

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.

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.

Weiser River National Recreation Trail

Scenic, but rough

June, 2022 by y86ipug8jp

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.

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.
