All along the trail are secluded seating areas nestled into the bushes overlooking the river, or in serene grassy coves, and among gorgeous trees. Bridges cross the river and small tributaries occasionally. Houses and condos back up to the path at intervals, and the trail passes through downtown as well as Boise State University, making it a well used commuting path during the work week.
There was plenty of shade through the Northern portion of the trail, making it popular on this sunny, summer Saturday morning.

At the Southern end we crossed the river at Barber Park and made our way into the Bown Crossing neighborhood, where we had been told were several excellent options for lunch. We chose to eat at Boise Fry Company, where they specialize in preparing different types of local potatoes in several styles of fries. We had a delicious bison burger, quinoa salad, and some delicious fries with 3 of their many house-made dipping sauces.
