Blackline Guides | Boise Area
The Boise Foothills contain some of the most accessible trail systems in the area. These trails are heavily used by many different types of uses due to their proximity to a large population base. Most of the trails located in the foothills are now a part of the Ridge to Rivers trail system. Many of the trails that are a part of the system are covered in our guides, but there is also a Ridge to Rivers trail map that is available at most outdoor shops in Boise.
Many of the trails in the “blackline guides” for the Boise Area are not a part of the ridge to rivers trail system and therefore are not included on the trail map provided by that organization. For these trails we recommend using “blackline guides” as an introduction point and also packing recommended equipment such as a topo map and compass along with you on your trip.
