Discover the Boise Foothills

One of the biggest attractions near Boise ID homes is the area known as the Boise Foothills. Located just north of Boise, the Foothills are easy to get to from Boise and nearby communities.

The Boise Foothills are public lands that range from the Lucky Peak Reservoir northward to Eagle ID. Geologically, they are foothills of the Rocky Mountains. They offer various recreational activities suitable for all ages and abilities. You’ll find everything from picnic areas and easy walking paths to steep, narrow hiking and biking trails.

The Foothills are also ideal for bird and wildlife watching and photography. Wildflowers bloom throughout the area in the spring and early summer.

Visit the Foothills Learning Center to tour the Native Plant Garden, take a walk on the self-guided trail, or enjoy a meal in the picnic area. Hulls Gulch Reserve has trails suitable for hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, and dog walking.

Table Rock is the most famous hiking destination in the Foothills. It stands 900 feet above downtown Boise and offers great views from the top. Table Rock is reached by a somewhat challenging 3.7-mile loop trail that takes about 2 ½ hours to hike.

You’ll also have great views from your new home in the Highlands at Cartwright Ranch. This brand new community section features luxury homes on an exclusive elevated site among the Foothills.
