Ridge to Rivers


Trails are finally drying back out rather well in the Foothills, and wildflowers are popping - with lots of lupine, balsamroot and wild phlox in bloom currently - amid a sea of very green grass.
Trails recently worked on by our Ridge to Rivers crews include Central Ridge and Central Ridge Spurs, Peggy's, Doe Ridge, Quick Draw and Polecat Loop.
Enjoy the trails and be kind out there!

About Ridge to Rivers

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.
