The Boise Greenbelt is accessible from many neighborhoods and spots along the river. You can access a map of the greenbelt via the 'visit website' link above.
The 25-mile Boise River Greenbelt is one of Boise's most beloved parks. The tree-lined pathway follows the river through the heart of the city and provides scenic views, wildlife habitat and pedestrian access to many of the city's popular riverside parks. The Greenbelt also serves as an alternative transportation route for commuters.
Bethine Church River Trail
A 1.6-mile section of Greenbelt located in a 24-acre natural area on the south side of Boise River was named in honor of the late Bethine Church to commemorate her efforts to preserve and conserve public lands. The unpaved pathway, which extends from the Cottonwood Apartments off ParkCenter Boulevard to the East ParkCenter Bridge near Bown Crossing, is known as the Bethine Church River Trail.
Idaho Birding Trail
Greenbelt users can learn about Idaho's native birds and their habitats thanks to three signs provided by the Coeur d'Alene-based WREN Foundation.
The signs are part of the Idaho Birding Trail, a program initiated by Idaho Department of Fish & Game employees and Idaho birders seeking to identify the best places to observe birds. There are 175 Idaho Birding Trail locations throughout the state. Twenty-nine sites feature interpretive signs, which provide a glimpse into the lives of the birds you can find there. More information about the Idaho Birding Trail can be found at www.idahobirdingtrail.orgGreenbelt120
Illustrated with original artwork by Boise graphic artist Grady Myers and large color photos, Idaho Birding Trail signs will help you and your family identify our state's birds and learn about birds' habitats and behavior. Find out how they raise their young, what they eat, and what we must do to conserve them for future generations.
