What is TrailSmart© ?

TrailSmart© is a program designed to educate trail system users of proper trail etiquette and appropriate conditions for trail usage. TrailSmart© works in conjunction with the Ridge to Rivers Trail Partnership (City of Boise, Ada County, Bureau of Land Management, Idaho Department of Fish and Game and US Forest Service) to provide up-to-date and enjoyable educational materials (videos). Participants voluntarily watch the video, answer a few questions about proper trail usage and then optionally make a tax deductible donation. TrailSmart© members will not only feel good about being a responsible trail user but also recieve an annual TrailSmart© sticker and a packet of discounted offers from local retailers who support the TrailSmart© initiative. Money donated through this program goes toward the maintenance of your local trail systems through an annual gift to the City of Boise Ridge to Rivers program.
