Boise — Tour of the Reserves: The Mesa

In the final month of this year’s Tour of the Reserves series, we feature the Mesa Reserve. Situated near the high-traffic 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. With almost three miles of trails, this reserve offers fantastic geological features, unique terrain and views. Join us for a spring hike in the Mesa!

The city of Boise, Foothills Learning Center and ICL offer this exciting year-long adventure series, Tour of the Reserves, from September through May each year to help Boiseans get to know your backyard. Some months include short hikes, others include walking presentations, historical stories or acoustic concerts.

The city of Boise’s foothills open space includes 11 reserves. In total, the city manages roughly 4,000 acres and 40 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.

Registration required! Contact Lana to reserve your spot and find out meeting place.
