Boise—Tour of the Reserves: Mesa Reserve

Tour of the Reserves is back for the fall! This month 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 3 miles of trails, this reserve offers fantastic geological features, unique terrain and views. Join us on a late summer hike in the Mesa!

The city of Boise, Foothills Learning Center and ICL are offering this exciting year-long adventure series,Tour of the Reserves, to help those of us lucky enough to live in or near Boise to get to know our backyard. Some months include short hikes; others include walking presentations and historical stories.

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 get details on the meeting place.
