A lush greenspace, Boise River Greenbelt stretches over 32 km (20 mi). This once-neglected space was once used for dumping trash. In the 1960s, the city began transforming it for recreation. The greenbelt now stretches from Lucky Peak Dam to just past Eagle Road. Its trails are used for leisure by cyclists, joggers, and walkers. It's also an alternative commuter trail. Much of the trail is paved, but cars are prohibited. The tree-lined greenbelt winds through numerous riverside parks, communities, and wildlife habitats, as well as past landmarks, such as the Anne Frank and Human Rights Memorial.

Boise River Greenbelt reviews
While visiting Boise, this walk was recommended by numerous people. It was a great way to see the Boise State University campus, the Boise River, and take in some nature at the same time. more »
Absolutely lovely to walk or bike for miles in any direction along the Greenbelt. The path is even, it was very safe and everyone is happy! The river is lovely to see and the trees are so varied. more »
This is a beautifully done trail. You can rent bikes from Boise state university for $40 per week. It does need better trail signage as there are several divergent paths joining the trail. Also there are several spots where tree roots will launch you into outer space if you're going to fast.
