Long range plans for the Portneuf Greenway include a trail along the Portneuf River from Simplot to the Gap. We have completed over half of this 13 mile stretch of trail.

Remaining stretches include:
  1. Kraft Hill and Simplot-Swanson Reaches at the north end of Pocatello
  2. Bannock Highway Reach (from Taysom Rotary Park south to Cheyenne Avenue)
  3. Southern Reach (from Edison Fichter Nature Area south to the Gap)
We have submitted for a $556,000 Transportation Enhancement Grant to bring the trail south from Taysom Rotary Park to Tech Farm Road. If we receive this grant, we will be able to complete this section of trail, which includes a bridge under Bannock Highway (at Taysom Rotary Park) and a bridge over the Portneuf River, in 2009.

If you are interested in helping us plan routes for any of these sections of trails, please give us a call! We are currently in the process of contacting landowners to explore the possibility of a recreational easement through their properties.
