2. Boise River Greenbelt
The Boise River Greenbelt is actually an area of parkland that sprawls across 25 miles and follows the idyllic banks of the Boise River.
The Greenbelt runs through the center of Boise and you can take in the local flora and fauna here as well as the stunning views across the city at the same time.
Trails run all over the park and there is also a bike path that stretches for ten miles.
There are also popular hikes, one of which features a scavenger hunt that takes in important aspects of historical significance related to the city.
Other themed hikes include the self-explanatory Idaho Birding Trail and the Bethine Church River Trail.
