Boise River Greenbelt
Stretching more than 20 miles from Eagle Island State Park eastward to Discovery State Park at the base of Lucky Peak Dam , this paved pathway offers inline skaters, joggers, walkers and cyclists a year-round paved pathway. The well-marked trail meanders through downtown Boise, Veterans Memorial Park , and Julia Davis Park following the serpentine Boise River. Trailside restaurants offer refreshments and people watching opportunities. Once you leave Boise's boundaries, the pathway provides views of rolling brown mountains and wildlife, including herons and bald eagles.
The first time I went I was amazed! There are people all over swimming, biking and totally enjoying themselves! I've made a weekly treat for myself to go and bike eight miles. I couldn't resist not to... it's SOOO beautiful!
This little known gem is where I grew up. I used the greenbelt as a way to get from one end of the city to another. I remember moonlight walks behind the college. Floating down the river in the summer. And running through Ann Morrison to watch the balloon lift offs in the summer. A trip through Kathryn Albertsons is like being Alice in Wonderland. The greenbelt is a thing of beauty and fun and hope Boise keeps it maintained into the future.
A wonderful place to walk, ride your bike, roller blade. A paved path that runs along the Boise River for approximately 23 miles where you can see bald eagles, canadian geese, ducks, mink, squirrels, beaver and various other wild life. If you enjoy the out doors and love to look at wildlife this is a wonderful place to explore.

Thanks to the City of Boise for having the foresight to obtain all the land along the Greenbelt/Boise river area.
The greenbelt is a wonderful place to walk, ride bikes, or rollerblade. It's fun for the whole family and very safe. It's located next to the boise river. This is a great place to go and visit for both locals and tourists.
