Boise River [BO2]


The Boise River itself is a tributary of the Snake River, approximately 75 mi (120 km) long, and drains part of the Sawtooth Range northeast of Boise as well as much mixed land.  During the summer it becomes a gentle ride toward downtown Boise going through the greenbelt recreation area and passing many of the city's great parks for which it is well known. This upper stretch of the Boise River starting at Barber Park is an extremely popular raft and tube river by locals and visitors. More guided float opportunities lie within the lower stretch of the Boise leaving town and winding down the less popular tree lined stretch of the river toward the other communities in the Treasure Valley.
