The Idaho Falls Greenbelt is exactly what its name brings to mind: a green north-south connector through the city along both sides of the Snake River. On its north end, the trail runs adjacent to University Place and through Freeman Park, which offers picnic shelters, restrooms, and a playground. From there, the paved pathway heads south safely whisking travelers beneath Rigby Highway (U.S. 20), past Civitan Park, and along the border of downtown Idaho Falls.
You can cross the river on a pedestrian bridge at Sportsman Park to reach the mixed-use community of Snake River Landing, or stay on the east side of the river to reach South Tourist Park, where camping is available. Sportsman Park offers a gazebo and picnic tables to stop and take in the river views and has a Japanese-style garden to explore.
The experience at its north end is more serene as the trail winds through patches of trees and open areas. Going south, the trail borders residential neighborhoods and then commercial areas beginning mid-trail. There will also be some light industrial activity along the last leg of the trail.
Parking and restrooms are available at the north end of the trail in Freeman Park (located on Science Center Drive).
