BLM Boise District in Southwestern Idaho 

In the Spotlight 

Are you interested in how the Ridge to Rivers Trail System will be managed in the future? We want to hear from you! The Ridge to Rivers partnership is initiating a master planning process that will guide development and management of the popular trail system over the next 10 years. The planning process will take place over the next year. It will include an initial on-line trail user survey from October 1st through 15th, followed by two rounds of public open house workshops and additional on-line opportunities to provide input. The goal is to put together a plan that meets the needs of our trail users while balancing wildlife habitat, clean water and natural resources management. Learn more. Follow the latest information Boise Foothills Trail Conditions Facebook page. More information: David Gordon, Ridge to Rivers Program Manager, 493-2531.
