Boise Pathways Plan

A City for Everyone includes safe, reliable transportation options for people who live, work and recreate in Boise. The Boise Pathways Plan will build on the success of the Boise River Greenbelt and the path along portions of the Ridenbaugh Canal to develop a robust system of off-street walking and biking pathways to safely connect our city and allow people to get around without relying on a vehicle.

What are Pathways?

Pathways are a paved path intended for two-way, travel such as biking and walking (cars and motorcycles do not have access). They are typically found away from roads or busy streets, along a river, canal, or through parks and open space. You can also find them along roadways where space permits. The Boise River Greenbelt and the Federal Way Bikeway are two local examples of pathways in our community.

For decades, Boise has been trying to expand the City’s pathways. While those efforts have primarily focused on making the Boise River Greenbelt the well-connected pathway enjoyed by many, this plan seeks to identify opportunities for additional connection points across the City.
