North Boise Real Estate

With a walkability score of 64 and a bike score of 77, North Boise encourages getting out of your car and getting to know your neighborhood.

North Boise (also called ‘The North End’) is the gateway to outdoor recreation in the Boise foothills, and historic Hyde Park is the place to start and end your trail trips. An excellent base for bikers, walkers, and hikers alike, this urban retail area also offers great shopping and some of Boise’s best local restaurants serving up local beer and featuring local artists and musicians.

Close to Hyde Park is Hulls Gulch Reserve, a 292 acre site that is part of 190 miles of trails in the Ridges to Rivers trail system. The trails here are managed by an association of several different agencies, allowing them to pool their resources and create a remarkable outdoor experience so close to the city. The trails are open year round with access for pedestrians, mountain bikers, and equestrians. Part of Hulls Gulch Reserve is Camel’s Back Park. Camel’s Back offers a playground, a wide open field, and an easy hike that provides amazing panoramic views of the Treasure Valley.

From trail systems to river systems, North Boise offers outdoor recreation for everyone. Quinn’s Pond, Esther Simplot Park Complex and Boise Whitewater Park make up a large park area located by the Boise River. The Whitewater park has an adjustable play wave for water sports practice and competition. Quinn’s Pond and Esther Simplot Park are connected by a series of waterways creating accessible by kayak, canoe, and stand up paddle boards.

The North Boise is also the base of Bogus Basin Road, which takes just 40 minutes to get to the local ski hill, Bogus Basin. Bogus Basin is famous for its skiing, affordability, and its proximity to town, but is also open in the summer for hiking, biking, and concerts. There is always something to do up there.

Downtown is the place to be for Boise nightlife. Eighth Street and Main Street are the nightlife hubs and are being renewed and renovated while keeping its celebrated charm. New hotels and Jack’s Urban Meeting Place encourage residents and visitors alike to explore everything, from fine dining and stage productions, to book stores and movie theaters.

The North End is locally famous for its old and unique houses. Many houses are large and were built on large plots of land when the city of Boise was young. Even the smaller houses are unique and desirable. When and if these houses make it on the market, they are among the fastest sells in the entire city! A short walk around the North End will showcase the beautiful architecture down sidewalks lined with mature trees and amazing landscaping. Even the cars seem quieter in the North End.
