FIT4MOM’s Favorite Walking Loops for Spring Sunshine (2024)

By Angie Krueger, Fit4Mom Boise owner


Picture this. It is another sleepy Tuesday, the forecast is currently overcast in the low 50s, and staying inside is not an option. You could go to the neighborhood park but you’ll likely just end up in the swing, again. A walk. A nice long, quiet walk with a pack full of snacks. Perfect. But where to? 


We got you! Check out FIT4MOM’s curated list of sunny walking paths to make those chilly Spring outings more enjoyable.



Esther Simplot Park - Garden City

  • 3206 W Pleasanton Ave, Boise, ID 83702


FIT4MOM Boise’s favorite waterfront walk! This pathway is just a hop, skip, and a jump from the lively Garden City. Follow the road all the way back to the main lot nearest the river. This “loop” is more of an out-n-back along the Boise River. The views are worth it!

START: On the farthest side of the parking lot near the bridge. Turn right toward the Boise River Bridge. Do not cross over the river, keep left toward Quinn’s Pond. Follow the greenbelt. Once you near the empty parking lot, turn around using the pathway on the left.

END: Head back to the start point, to end your walk, cross the footbridge to the playground.


Join FIT4MOM for a Stroller Strides class here every other Thursday, starting March 28th!


Julius M Kleiner Memorial Park

  • Kleiner Memorial Pkwy, Meridian, ID 83642


This loop is just under a mile, so parking farther away may help you get extra steps and avoid kids seeing the playground too early!

START: Starting near the basketball courts, turn right (away from the playground) and follow the walking path around the pond. Keep right for more steps! 

END: When you pass a small rest area, take the next left and walk toward the band shell. There you can follow the path toward the center of the park, then a right toward the playground.

Cassia Park

  • 4600 W Camas St, Boise, ID 83705


This small but mighty loop has a mix of sun and shade. Make a double lap to complete a mile, or follow these directions for an easy out-n-back loop.



START: Start under the archway and follow the path around the tennis courts. 

END: Loop back by turning right between the baseball field and the tennis courts.


School of Soccer Moms: Join FIT4MOM for Body Boost Pop-Up classes here this Spring while your kiddo is at practice!


Fuller Park

  • 3761 W Park Creek Dr, Meridian, ID 83642


Tucked away in a residential area, this loop has so much variety! Park all the way back for easy pathway entrance.

START: Begin on the walking path farthest from the playground, at the end of the parking lot. Turn right and follow the pathway past the pond. Take the second right on the Ten Mile Pathway to follow the paved loop back toward the pond. Turn left to loop around the pond and follow toward the parking lot. 

END: Continue across the parking lot to follow the pathway around the baseball fields, and return to the far end of the parking lot to complete the 1-mile loop.
