The Ridge to Rivers partnership, led by the City of Boise, is seeking feedback on the Boise Foothills trail system through an online user survey. The goal of the brief survey is to gather feedback on overall trail use, follow up on some of the special trail management strategies adopted in 2021 and seek suggestions about future opportunities for improved recreation in the foothills. The fall survey is scheduled to close at 5 p.m. on October 31, 2022.
Ridge to Rivers hosted an open house on Wednesday, September 28. Thank you to everyone who was in attendance. Interested in viewing the visual boards? Click here to view.
