For over 25 years the Portneuf Greenway Foundation has built safe, separated biking, walking and running trails in the Greater Pocatello Area. We like to encourage the citizens of Pocatello to get out on the trails to get healthy. Our Walk With a Doc program is designed so people can learn how easy it is to get Healthy by using the Greenway. It is Safe, Fun and FREE to use the Greenway Trails.
Our goal is to connect trails where we can to provide safe commuting for pedestrians and bicyclists. We are expanding in to the underserved areas of Pocatello and Chubbuck. There are trails planned to help kids get to school safely as well as longer trails for recreation. It currently costs $100,000 to build one mile of trail. Most of this cost is asphalt.
As we finish more trails, businesses will begin to look more favorably on Pocatello as a place to locate. They look for amenities such as greenways so their work force has a place to recreate and exercise.
Join us in making Pocatello the kind of city people want to visit and perhaps stay awhile.
