So we’ve compiled a list of our top 10 favorite off-leash dog parks in the Treasure Valley, along with what makes them so great. Here they are, in no particular order:

Bogus Basin Mountain Recreation & Ski Resort - Boise, Idaho

Make Memories All Year Round at the Bogus Basin Recreation Area

There are not many places in the nation where the commute to your local ski resort can rival many people’s commute home from work. Then again, not many cities have a ski resort less than 45 minutes away – one of the many unique perks of living in Boise.

The Bogus Basin Mountain Recreation Area and Ski Resort, located just 16.5 miles north of Boise, is beloved in the Treasure Valley. The drive alone – along a switchback road that transitions from high desert sagebrush to coniferous evergreens, all the while offering breathtaking views of the valley across to the Owyhee Mountains – is worth the trip, regardless of the season.

One of the best things about Bogus Basin is that you
