In late fall of 2022, Boise Parks and Recreation launched a 15-question online survey to gather feedback on the Boise Foothills trail system. The Ridge to Rivers partnership, led by the City of Boise, received more than 3,100 responses to the trail user survey that closed on October 31, 2022. We appreciate the valuable feedback received as we continue to learn about user experiences on the trails.

Feedback gathered indicates overall support and appreciation for the trail system and the continuation of management strategies.

Following survey results and evaluation by trail managers, the directional use of Polecat Loop Trail #81 will continue to change direction annually. Polecat Loop will change to counterclockwise directional use for 2023, effective this spring. A start date for the new direction will be announced in the coming weeks, as weather permits. All other special trail management strategies will continue as is.

Thank you again for your participation and feedback.
