One of the reasons that so many people are drawn to the Treasure Valley, is the fact that we enjoy all four seasons here.

But more than that, our state is breathtakingly gorgeous, and there’s a vast selection of fun activities to do outside in order to soak up its beauty.

 

 

One of the most popular pastimes for outdoor enthusiasts is hiking.

And the Boise area is perfect for this, because there are so many different trails scattered all throughout the valley!

Some are a short drive away, while others are right down the road… but there is truly something for everyone, no matter the age or ability.
