With over 190 miles of trails in the Ridge to Rivers system, your possibilities are virtually endless. Different times of the year afford a variety of experiences to be found. Wildflowers are abundant and color the hills shades of pink, yellow and blue during the spring. Summer is a good time to get out of the heat and visit the trails closer to Bogus Basin, where the temperatures are dramatically cooler. Fall brings a new variety of color to the hills – hues of gold, red and amber accent the green of bitterbrush and sagebrush.
Be sure that you are prepared before going out:
- Check the weather to make sure you are dressed appropriately and that you won’t be caught in a spring or summer thunderstorm.
- Always carry water, sunscreen, a hat and a snack.
- Know which trails are open to your chosen use.
- Carry a Ridge to Rivers map, available at a variety of locations around the Treasure Valley.
