Ridge to Rivers


Happy Saturday! With the recent heavy rains and cold weather many trails still have not had the opportunity to fully dry. Trails may look good at the start but please be flexible and willing to turn around once you hit mud.

Keep this in mind when selecting your trails today and visit sandy trails, all-weather trails and certainly our Foothills roads like upper 8th Street, Mountain Cove and Rocky Canyon. Avoid other trails that will be tacky or muddy.

We had a good freeze overnight meaning that many trails will be nice and frozen but be prepared to turn around as things thaw mid morning.

Take a look at our Interactive Map   and our Winter Trail Web Page to help you plan your outing today.

Thank you for checking on the trail conditions before planning your adventure today!

About Ridge to Rivers

The Boise Foothills provide a postcard backdrop that inspires and soothes the soul. An interconnected network of roads and trails courses through the hills, linking not only neighborhoods with public lands but also connecting people with the natural environment. With over 220 miles of trails, there is something for everyone. Here we provide ideas and tips about where to go, how to enjoy the foothills without damaging them and information about the area you may find interesting. As you explore, notice the diversity in the land, the plants and the animals, then imagine our community without this unique treasure. You can help protect and care for this special place by learning more about the land and its needs.


Old Pen Trail and Ridge Crest Trail are now closed for the season due to the weather. Both are expected to reopen in March 2024 when conditions improve.
