Open space won again in the battle between construction and conservation of the Boise Foothills. This time, the victory came in the form of a 12.6-mile trail easement offered up by Daniel's Creek Lanc LLC, a subsidiary of Grossman Company Properties. The trail stretches from northwest Boise to the Shafer Butte trail system at Bogus Basin, and the easement won't cost the city a thing. Trails are being mapped out by the Ridge to Rivers staff, the Bureau of Land Management and the U.S. Forest Service. Hooray hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding.
