Adventure is just a stone's throw away with The Hiker's Guide: Best Easy Hikes, Greater Boise, from Hiking Idaho. This guidebook features 50 great, doable trails within 2 hours of Boise.


  • Covers the Boise Front, Leslie Gulch, Owyhee foothills, Snake River Canyon, Boise River (Middle Fork), Sage Hen Reservoir, and woods near Idaho City, Lowman and Garden Valley
  • The diversity of the hikes is remarkable, from well-trodden trails near Boise to lonely and little-known paths farther away
  • The one common theme—all of the hikes are doable without a huge investment of time or physical effort
  • All of the hikes lead to a defined destination that requires a hike of 5 miles or less (out-and-back or as a loop) and with less than 900 feet of gain
  • The shortest hike is a flat half-mile; at the opposite end of the spectrum are longer "easy" hikes with enough elevation gain to require a little perspiration
  • "Best of" lists, including forest, wildflower, view, easy backpacks, family friendly, solitude, fall and sunset hikes
  • At-a-glance facts, including distance, total elevation gain, season, cautionary advice and time to complete
  • 120 photographs; 24 pages in full-color
  • Easy-to-reference maps for each trail
  • Concise, accurate driving directions
  • Notes about flora, fauna and recent wildfire impacts
