    In BoiseEagle/Riggins next week...

    Hey everybody,
    My wife and I will be in Eagle on Saturday night 'til Wednesday, and we'd like to check out some local stuff. We're looking into moving into the Boise area next year, and I wanted to get a feel for the riding. I figure we'll hit the Velopark since it'll be close. Any other suggestions?
    I'm bringing the Pugsley, just 'cause. Think there might be some snow riding at Brundage, or anywhere closer to Riggins?
    Thanks in advance for any info, and hopefully we'll get a chance to meet and ride with some of you.

    Los

    Riggins is very low in elevation, so you won't get snow riding there. That's where you go for trail riding when there is snow everywhere else. Check out the rapid river trail just outside of Riggins.

    How are the Ridges to Rivers trails in Camelsback Park? any other in town recommendations besides the Velopark?
    BTW, the sticky on Boise trails is a big help- some good resources on there. I can understand, with the amount of trails you guys have, a reluctance to recommend any particular trails to someone who is just staying for a couple of days. It seems like there just won't be enough time to ride much of your local stuff! Nice problem to have...
    Anyway, we'll be in town, so if there's something I just can't miss, I'd appreciate a heads up!

    Yes, the trails starting from Camelsback are worth checking out and will be a good intro to the local riding options, especially for this time of year.

    You've probably seen this, http://ridgetorivers.org/ which is a good resource and I'm sure you'll be able to "hey dude" it at Camelsback to get some guidance too.
