About Our Foothills
To appreciate your time on the Boise Front, it is helpful to understand the area in its diverse forms and history. As you find your way around the trail system, this diversity becomes visible in many ways. The plants, terrain and even human uses are quite different depending on elevation and proximity to the urban edge. Grazing, mining, recreation, housing development, wildlife and other natural resources are found here. With so much diversity, it becomes important to help strike a balance with these elements so that we can all continue to benefit from the many important values that merge in this unique area.
