Boise Greenbelt

The city's favorite path


Time and again, the Boise Greenbelt is touted as one of the top attributes of the City of Trees—by both residents and visitors. We have to agree.

Stretching 23 miles from Eagle to Lucky Peak along the Boise River, the Greenbelt is a hub of activity for bikers, walkers and runners. Over the years, unconnected sections have been linked, and one more will be added thanks to a new pedestrian bridge now under construction.

Once completed, the bridge will connect the end of 36th Street in Garden City with the pathway on the north side of the river—roughly the location of the new Ray Neef MD Boise River Recreation Park near the Waterfront District. The Greenbelt will stay open throughout the project.
