We can't lie - trails this time of year are dry, dusty and in many places quite loose. Such is the nature of the soils in our area once the calendar turns to late summer. On the bright side, we will begin to get a respite from the hot temperatures over the next few days so you can once again play in the lower Foothills without overheating!
Take a couple of minutes to check out this great trail etiquette video produced in Bend, Oregon. Different trail system, but the same etiquette rules apply no matter where you are: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a-oSMRzu7YU&feature=share
Enjoy the trails and please be respectful of all other trail users! Take and live the 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.

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.
