There is just nothing quite like fall, and every year we always try to soak it up as much as possible with walks in the park to see and play in the leaves. And as peak fall foliage time is here, I thought it would be fun to share my favorite places in Boise for viewing fall leaves (and taking those obligatory fall pictures too!). If you want to find the estimated time for peak foliage where you are, this map is super helpful!
Kathryn Albertson Park
Of all the places in Boise to take in the fall leaves, this one tops the list. This is (in my opinion) the most beautiful park in Boise and it is absolutely stunning in the fall.
This is a lovely rustic park that is right next to the Boise river. There are lots of yellow leaves and tall yellow grasses which gives it a beautiful golden fall feel.
South Surprise Way
This 2 mile road is an incredibly beautiful place to take a short drive and view the leaves. While the whole road is gorgeous, there is a stretch of road where the entire roadway is lined on both sides by towering trees with bright red leaves.
Idaho Botanical Garden
Not only can you look at the changing fall leaves here, you can also enjoy the blooming fall flowers!
MK Nature Center
This sweet little nature center just off the greenbelt near downtown, is a great place to view some beautiful fall foliage and wildlife.
Table Rock or the Boise Train Depot
Take in a bird’s eye view of the city and view all of the leaves from above. If you time it right you can also get a glimpse of snow in the mountains!
