The Portneuf Greenway is a collection of paved trails, currently totaling nearly 17 miles throughout Pocatello, connecting residential and commercial neighborhoods with natural areas. Trail advocates are working towards developing the Portneuf Greenway into a 27-mile pathway.
Named for the Portneuf River, which the greenway largely parallels, the trail at times gets quite close to the waterway and offers trailside benches to take in the views. The pathway connects a handful of parks along the way, which offer convenient jumping on-and-off points for the trail with parking lots, picnic areas, and portable restrooms.
A highlight of the trail is the Edson Fichter Nature Area; spread over 29 acres in south Pocatello, the preserve provides an excellent opportunity for viewing wildlife and for fishing.
Another scenic trail section begins on the Idaho State University campus and heads down to the river. Along the way, it passes two great attractions: Zoo Idaho and the Bannock County Historical Museum, which includes the Fort Hall Replica, a recreation of a fur trading post circa the early 1800s.
Parking is available at many points along the trail, including:
