10 Easy Spring Hikes in the Boise Area with Breathtaking Views

One of the greatest things about our city is the great variety in outdoor activity year-round, but it's especially amazing as the temperatures warm up during the summer months, in our opinion.

Classes and camps for all ages are firing up under the direction of the City of Boise Parks and Recreation Department. As of Today, registration for summer activities is officially open and the options are endless.
