Hawkins Range Reserve offers new recreational trails

If you're a fan of the Boise Foothills, you'll want to check out the most recent addition to the area's trails, located in the Hawkins Range Reserve. The added space gives the public official access to 393 acres of new recreational land.

The new trail is a one-way, 5.7 mile loop with a cutoff to a shorter 1.5 mile trek. The trail will be managed by Ridge to Rivers and is subject to seasonal closures like all foothills trails. Dogs are also required to stay leashed until mid-June to protect elk in the area.

Director of Parks and Recreation Doug Holloway and Open Space Superintendent Lisa Duplessie joined Idaho Matters to talk more about the reserve.
