Motorized Users

Motorized UserPlease help us preserve the integrity of these trails by riding only when they are firm and dry.

Motorcycles, ATVs and wet trails don’t mix well – the trail ends up losing – becoming a series of large ruts.

Please ride slowly on mixed use trails – especially the section of 8th Street Motorcycle Trail #4 between the 8th Street Motorcycle Parking Lot and the Fat-Tire Traverse Trail #42 junction – as this area is heavily used by hikers, runners and mountain bikers as well.

Ride only on trails open to motorized use.

Other Power Driven Mobility Devices  

The use of other power driven mobility devices, including E-bikes, on the Ridge to Rivers trail network is restricted to trails and roads that currently allow motorized use. Federal agency partners prohibit e-bikes and other motorized devices on all trails that cross BLM and USFS land. The City of Boise is currently working on a policy to guide e-bike use on the Greenbelt and investigating suitability on certain trails.

  • 8th Street Extension
  • Rocky Canyon Road
  • Boise Ridge Road
  • Lucky Peak Road
  • Ridge Road       
  • E. Highland Valley Road
  • 8th Street Motorcycle Trail
