Riverside Access

  • Boise Greenbelt: Even on a quick overnight stop-through, we encourage you to take advantage of our water’s edge location by walking a bit along the Boise Greenbelt. The Greenbelt consists of 25 miles of paved and unpaved trails along the banks of the river, connecting 15 city parks. On-site bike rentals are available at the front desk.
  • Float and Boat: The local department of parks and recreation offer tube and raft rentals and a shuttle service for your family’s four-hour float through the City of Trees. You’re welcome to bring your own canoe, kayak, tube or paddleboard as well. For more information about seasonal river floats and shuttle service, contact the Park Service.
  • Boise River Park: For whitewater enthusiasts or curious kayak-watchers, the excitement of Boise’s whitewater park, featuring the waveshaper, is a great stop. Check out the rentals, lessons, and guidelines for the park.
