A lush greenspace, Boise River Greenbelt stretches over 32 km (20 mi). This once-neglected space was once used for dumping trash. In the 1960s, the city began transforming it for recreation. The greenbelt now stretches from Lucky Peak Dam to just past Eagle Road. Its trails are used for leisure by cyclists, joggers, and walkers. It's also an alternative commuter trail. Much of the trail is paved, but cars are prohibited. The tree-lined greenbelt winds through numerous riverside parks, communities, and wildlife habitats, as well as past landmarks, such as the Anne Frank and Human Rights Memorial.

  • Spent 2 hours walking along the Greenbelt, admiring the well tended parks along the way, then spent several hours touring the Old Idaho Penitentiary, and finally going to dinner at the St. Lawrence...

  • One of the best parks I have ever visited. Idaho, knows how to do recreational parks. I walked the 10mile trail 2 days straight. The second time, I tried other branches and was not disappointed...
