Outdoor Adventure Guide

We’re lucky to live in a place where we can experience the outdoors all year long.  The winters are filled with skiing and snowboarding while the Boise River is occupied all summer with floaters and kayakers. This list is designed to help the residents of the Treasure Valley decide what adventure they want to go on first!

Table Rock Review

Outdoor Adventure | Table Rock | Amanda “Ammo” Morgan

I’ve never been zip-lining, and I hate being cold and wet so rafting isn’t my favorite thing in the world. But, the hike up Table Rock is challenging and fun. It’s cool  to choose the different variations of routes to get to the top and back down (did you know there’s a back way??). I am ALWAYS huffing and puffing by the time I get to the top, but the photo op is totally worth it!

Outdoor Adventure | Table Rock | Virginia Treat

One of my favorite things about living in Boise is how close we are to any outdoor activity/adventure. There are so many fantastic spots to explore and enjoy, it’s really hard to pick just one. But if you’re looking to just get out for a quick hike and scenery, I recommend Table Rock. Start at the bottom and hike your way up to the cross and you can just sit up there and look over our wonderful city!

Outdoor Activity | Floating the Boise River

Coming from California to Idaho was not an easy transition. But I will always remember my first summer in Boise, Idaho. One of the main reasons were the weekly trips to float the Boise River. Floating the river is fun, inexpensive and relaxing. You create memories on the river and that is why I love it so much!

Outdoor Adventure | Asana Climbing Gym

With the weather getting colder, people assume outdoor activities are off the table. Asana climbing gym on Chinden is a great alternative to being outside. They have a full gym and climbing walls for both novice and experienced climbers, the whole family is sure to have a blast while enjoying something new and challenging.

Outdoor Adventure | Mountain Biking & Snowboarding

Mountain Biking in the Boise Foothills during the spring, summer and fall, then night Snowboarding at Bogus Basin keeps me fit and sane after a fast-paced work week.  My favorite areas to ride are the trails at Table Rock (Rock Garden and Rock Island) and Military Reserve (Shane’s Loop). Both of these local mountain biking playgrounds offer incredible views of downtown Boise.

Outdoor Adventure | True Paintball Adventure Park & Warm Springs Golf Course

It’s way too hard to choose only one place to recommend for an Outdoor Activity in The Treasure Valley. So, I have two for you to check out! True Paintball and Warm Springs Driving Range. True Paintball… Well, that one speaks for its self! True Paintball Paintball Range isn’t for the weak but if you are looking for an adrenaline rush, here is where you need to go! As for Warm Springs Golf Course’s Driving Range, it is operated by the City of Boise so you can be certain that it will be clean and maintained. This was one of my favorite spots to clear my head and swing my new clubs. If you’re looking for something out of the ordinary, these are the places to hit… No pun intended!

Outdoor Adventure | Skydive Idaho & Lucky Peak

Depending on the Outdoor Adventure that you are looking for, I’ve got a suggestion for both water and sky! First, Lucky Peak. Are you looking to take the boat out for some fun in the sun? This is where! They’ve even got boat and jet ski rentals at their marina. It’s perfect. My husband and I are both wakesrufers, so we can get enough of the water. Lucky Peak is our go to water destination in the Treasure Valley.
Second, Skydive Idaho! These guys are a hoot! No matter your comfort level, they know just how to handle you. Safety first of course and a coming in as a close second would be fun! They have set out to ensure that you have the best experience all the way around!
