If you're not from Boise and you want to run like a local, here are some of the coolest areas to run around scenic Boise, Idaho.
The Boise Greenbelt
This is a 20 mile stretch of pavement that weaves through the entire town of Boise and it's outskirts. If you're visiting Boise in the summer or fall, this is a must-run. During the summer, the proximity of the greenbelt to the Boise river makes for a cool, refreshing run. In the fall, the path is encompassed by colorful trees and a gives off the crisp aroma of autumn.
Table Rock is a mountain pillar located just south-east of downtown Boise, nestled in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. This is probably the most popular hiking/running/biking trail in Boise. If you don't mind a steep climb, take a hike!
The best part of this trail is the end. Once you reach the top after a X% grade, a wonderful award awaits... some of the best views of the City of Trees. Not to mention, a close up of the illuminated 60-foot cross at the summit (3,629 ft.) Definitely worth a visit!
Camel's Back Park
For more gorgeous views of Boise, Camel's Back is a popular destination for locals and tourists alike. Hundreds of trails are interwoven in our Boise Foothills. Once you reach the top of the hill in Camel's Back Park, you'll discover hundreds of trails interwoven in our Boise Foothills. Get lost! Olympian Alexi Pappas did so this year... her experience is hilarious.
Enjoy your time in Boise!
