Who we are:
F.A.C.T.S. is the Foundation for Ada-Canyon Trails Systems, a non-profit 501(c)3 organization dedicated to the vision of connected non-motorized pathways from Lucky Peak State Park to the confluence of the Boise and Snake Rivers. Our members include representatives of many cooperating agencies, both governmental and non-governmental, and other interested parties including volunteer private citizens. We have a rich history of accomplishments spanning several decades.
What we do:
F.A.C.T.S. facilitates communication among pathway advocates, helps coordinate planning and design efforts, raises funds, builds and maintains pathways, and ideally subsequently passes everyday management of any pathways it builds to other agencies for long-term viability. You can find out more about our current projects, browse pathway maps, and explore much more through the menus at the top of this page.
