A lush greenspace, Boise River Greenbelt stretches over 32 km (20 mi). This once-neglected space was once used for dumping trash. In the 1960s, the city began transforming it for recreation. The greenbelt now stretches from Lucky Peak Dam to just past Eagle Road. Its trails are used for leisure by cyclists, joggers, and walkers. It's also an alternative commuter trail. Much of the trail is paved, but cars are prohibited. The tree-lined greenbelt winds through numerous riverside parks, communities, and wildlife habitats, as well as past landmarks, such as the Anne Frank and Human Rights Memorial.

Boise River Greenbelt reviews
Well maintained and clean walkways along the beautiful Boise River. So relaxing and pleasant. Paths are easy to walk/run/bike. I want to do more of it on my next trip! more »
I actually moved to Boise because of the Greenbelt. It's a long 26 mile + - path that is in excellent condition. Runs on both sides of the river. It is safe and free from homeless encampments. more »
This is a beautifully done trail. You can rent bikes from Boise state university for $40 per week. It does need better trail signage as there are several divergent paths joining the trail. Also there are several spots where tree roots will launch you into outer space if you're going to fast.
