Record heavy snows and the resulting above average run off have closed most of the trail. As of April Only eastern most 9 miles remain open. Federal water managers predict above flood stage releases into June. Check City of Boise website for closure maps. A key bridge between Boise and Garden City has been removed to save it from falling in the river and park managers say it will have to be relocated. Thus when flooding subsides you will not be able to ride the trail from one end to the other non stop. When it dries out it is still a great trail you will have to ride part and find the detour around the missing bridge to continue on.
Rode this trail from Eagle all the way to Lucky Peak reservoir over 2 days in late September. A great experience overall. Suggestions would be for a bit better markings along the route, as the downtown areas can be a bit confusing and congested.
The only negative is a local weed called goatheads....nasty little things that resemble organic thumbtacks....flattened 3 of 4 tires late one afternoon. Advise you carry a tire pump!!
My husband and I found this trail and really enjoyed this short walk.It is well-maintained and a pleasant time was had by both.
Have been looking for a good map of the Boise Greenbelt, but this is not it, Yet. It is a good start but missing the trails that run on both sides. It could also add bathrooms, air pumps, water coolers along the way. It would also help to display mileage marks.
This is an amazing running, walking, cycling trail along the Boise River near downtown Boise, ID. If you are coming to Boise, bring your exercise gear. There are also plenty of mountainous (off road) running, hiking, mountain bike trails close to the Greenbelt, don't miss those! The beautiful scenery and wildlife will make you want to stay and never leave!
Clean and well-kept. Not too long of a jog, but very beautiful :)
Idaho is known as the Gem State and this trail is a real jewel. I would rename this one the “Emerald Trail” because a good portion of the trail is lined with massive deciduous trees (think very green) which, along with the Boise River, actually cools the trail significantly during Boise’s hot summer months. Riding this trail is pure entertainment. Several outstanding parks along the trail provide fountains to cool off in, the zoo, festivals to enjoy, and people to watch. Stunning views of the foothills and the river abound. Restaurants of all types, many with outdoor seating, provide numerous opportunities to dine and enjoy cold beverages. Hotels on or near the trail makes this an excellent location for a weekend or extended stay bike trip. Downtown Boise is lively, is easily accessible from the Greenbelt, and has a “European” feel about it with outdoor cafes and parked bikes lining the streets. The eastern portion of the trail is wide open, has desert like views, and provides riders with an opportunity to put some real distance on the bike. The Boise Green Belt truly has it all and should not be missed.
An excellent surfaced Trail with Fruit Trees in Bloom. Extra visibility “Orange Flags” are provided for crossing two of the busy streets. A local man told me that the trail is to be extended north from Iowa Street. Current trail is 2.03 miles long. Noel Keller 29 Apr 09
Trail is marked as “Indian Creek Greenbelt”, 0.8 mile of excellent asphalt surface. I did not find the grass part of the trail to/or Sego Prairie Park. It may be the single path after the “observation bridge” across Indian Creek that I did not cross due to the poor approaches to the bridge.
"This trail is actually longer that 12 miles. It is closer to 20 miles. The trail extends from a mile west of the Western Idaho Fairgrounds in Garden City to Lucky Peak State Park east of Boise.
Sections of this trail have tree root damage, especially west of Human Rights Memorial and Boise State University."
