TUESDAY, MAY 26TH TRAIL REPORT:
Although we have received some light rain this morning, trails should be in great shape today - and with unseasonably warm weather heading our way later this week you might want to take advantage of this morning's cooler, cloudy weather.
A reminder to folks who like to walk and run their dogs in the Foothills - coyotes also live there, and this time of year they are very protective of their young pups. There have been isolated incidences between dogs and coyotes along upper Red Cliffs Trail, Rock Garden and Buena Vista in recent weeks. Be sure to keep your pets on-leash or close to you so that they are kept safe.
And remember - if you haven't taken the Happy Trails pledge, you can do it now: https://www.ridgetorivers.org/etiquette/happy-trails-pledge/
The Boise Foothills provide a postcard backdrop that inspires and soothes the soul. An interconnected network of roads and trails courses through the hills, linking not only neighborhoods with public lands but also connecting people with the natural environment. With over 190 miles of trails, there is something for everyone. Here we provide ideas and tips about where to go, how to enjoy the foothills without damaging them and information about the area you may find interesting. As you explore, notice the diversity in the land, the plants and the animals, then imagine our community without this unique treasure. You can help protect and care for this special place by learning more about the land and its needs.
