Outdoor Activities in Boise

Posted: Jun. 15th, 2012  |  By Amy Hughes

Boise, Idaho is situated perfectly between the Rocky Mountains and the Great Basin deserts. Three rivers converge nearby: the Boise, the Payette and the Snake, making this one of the country's number one places for outdoor activity.  If you are an outdoor enthusiast, Boise is a place you will want to visit. 

The Boise River Greenbelt

Incorporating nearly 25 miles of pathway running along both sides of one of Boise's three rivers, the Boise River Greenbelt is a popular spot for strollers, joggers, walkers, bikers, and wildlife observers.  There are 12 city parks connected to the greenbelt and walk bridges crossing the river making the experience delightful.

The Boise River

Approximately 75 miles long, the Boise River is a thrilling place to spend your day.  Walk along the river on the aforementioned Boise River Greenbelt, or enjoy the water itself by joining in the fun with the tubers, kayakers and rafters.  There are also great opportunities for wildlife observation and fishing.

Hulls Gulch Reserve

Located behind Camel's Back Park in the Boise Foothills, Hulls Gulch Reserve provides a great outdoor experience for hikers, joggers, mountain bikers, and the like.  For nearly any outdoor activity, check out this beautiful reserve.

Table Rock

For an amazing view and an awesome hike, spend a day at Table Rock.  From the ground you will notice a giant cross in the hills... that is Table Rock.  Drive or hike up there, enjoy the breathtaking view and wander around on one of the many paths or hiking trails in the hills.  Don't forget your water and a picnic lunch!
