Another Hidden Gem
Depending on where you live in the Valley this may or may not be something you're aware of.
I have lived here my entire life and I am still amazed at the random places I don't know about. My favorite place to play on the weekends is the Boise Greenbelt, Boise forever has my heart, I mean we have a river and greenbelt that runs down the middle of downtown Boise. But what about those that are in Meridian, Nampa, Caldwell?
Strangely I never knew about the Star River Walk, a nice walking path in the middle of Star! Is it a super long trail? No. But tons of trees and you guessed it.. the Boise River. It's a nice a little place to take the dogs (we took ours swimming), horses (yep, horses), fish, run, or just a nature walk.
It's open from dawn to dusk. If you're in the Star area, maybe taking a Fall drive. Check it out! Not a bad spot, not a bad a spot at all.
