Ridge to Rivers employs one of the few full-time trail crews in the country. Collectively our staff has over 70 years of trail experience, with skills ranging from trail design to various trail construction methods and maintenance techniques. Most of our staff have trail backgrounds that began with the U.S. Forest Service or with private trail contractors. We are considered experts in our field, with experience designing and building trails in settings that range from wilderness to highly trafficked urban areas, and in a variety of locations that include the Rocky Mountain West, New England, the Southwest and even Patagonia.
We are dedicated to our craft, and extremely committed to our goal of providing quality trail opportunities for the citizens of Boise and the greater Treasure Valley. Ridge to Rivers staff not only manage the trails, we are avid users of them, logging countless miles annually on our bikes and in our running shoes. This is invaluable in terms of our understanding the complexities of heavy use, weather extremes and erosive soils that make up the Boise Foothills environment.
