TRAILS for the Boise and surrounding area-Maps to Trailhead and Trail maps.

A list of Equine trails below are continually growing. One map (a Google map) takes you to the trailhead from your location. This can be downloaded to your phone. The other link will show you the trail details.

A map to the trailhead is marked “(MAP)” or “(TH MAP)” and will show you a Google map. This map works well on your phone. The other named links take you to PLOTAROUTE to display trail info. You can then scroll down to see additional info. about the trail. These are best viewed on a PC.

Using the PLOTAROUTE map, you can download it into multiple formats so you can then upload it into a mapping application of your choice.
