THURSDAY, MARCH 4TH TRAILS CONDITION REPORT: First, a very big thank you to everyone that has been posting their own trail reports over the past days and weeks. The extra information and insight gathered with more of you weighing in is hugely beneficial to everyone! Keep it up, especially while conditions are questionable and the weather has turned so appealing for folks to be out on trails. Once again, today's weather looks beautiful and even more spring-like than even the previous days. Highs in the upper 50's with sunshine means that it is going to be hard to resist heading outside, and rightly so! That said, we will still try to pump the breaks on the enthusiasm slightly today by mentioning that, yes, there are still A LOT of muddy trails out there. We can see in both our own outings yesterday and from your user reports that we are still coming across muddy trails that aren't ready for use. They will dry, and probably sooner rather than later, so give them a break in the meantime.

Be mindful, be kind, take 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. 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.
