Boise is quickly becoming a destination worthy of placement on mountain bikers’ must-ride lists. From long backcounty epics to quick, after-work laps at the local pump track, Boise has just about everything a rider may desire. Trail access starts from town, with the bordering foothills offering flowing singletrack. The farther into the mountains you go, the more trails you’ll discover; some start their descents miles outside and fall nearly all the way to downtown. In case you don’t want to pedal endlessly for hours to mountaintops, you can still earn your turns at the Eagle Bike Park on its jump lines or pump track.
