The Boise Greenbelt is a 25 mile stretch of tree-lined walking and biking pathway along the Boise River. The Greenbelt runs from Lucky Peak Dam east of Boise, through the heart of downtown Boise to Garden City, to just beyond Eagle, west of Boise. The Greenbelt provides scenic views of the river and its wildlife inhabitants and is a popular destination for birdwatchers.
In addition to being a great place to walk or bike, the Greenbelt is also a great area for fishing, as it provides lots of prime fishing locations along its banks or on bridges. There are portions of the river that are shallow enough that fishermen (and women) can wade into the water and try fly fishing.
The Greenbelt is home to Whitewater Park in Garden City, where surfers and kayak enthusiasts can take advantage of manmade waves, hanging ten right on the river. During the summer months, people can also float the river, relaxing for several miles as the river gently carries tubers downriver.
The Boise Greenbelt also offers a lot of prime residential real estate opportunities for people looking for a home with a fantastic view. People can find single-family homes and condos along the river, all with different amenities and design styles. Click here to view available waterfront homes for sale.
