Situated near the highly trafficked Table Rock area, this reserve shares several trails and provides access to open space, views, and recreation. It connects to the Ridge to Rivers trails system and the Boise Greenbelt in three different locations. Join us as we take a late summer walk through the fantastic geological features and terrain!
Get to know your backyard as The Foothills Learning Center and Idaho Conservation League team up to offer these short hiking “tours” of City owned foothills reserves. These fourteen reserves are a growing and interconnected system that provides environmental, social, health, economic and related benefits. Maybe you are already familiar with the trails, but you don’t know the history and plan for these special places. Come find out!
The city of Boise’s foothills open space includes 14 reserves. In total, the city manages roughly 5,000 acres and miles of trails within its reserves, all differing in elevation and accessibility. The reserve ecosystems include riparian habitat, grassland and alpine forests and they are home to creatures large and small.
All hikes are no more than 3 miles, free, and family friendly!
Please – no pets!
