The newly published Lake Lowell Area Bicycle and Pedestrian Access Plan identifies short and long-range bicycle and pedestrian facilities that will provide the public with safer and more convenient access to the area around Lake Lowell
and the Refuge, which is currently served by higher speed rural roads with narrow shoulders. The increased use
of non-motorized transportation connections to the Lake Lowell area and recreation sites within the Refuge enhances the safety and visitor experience, while minimizing the need to widen rural roads. The plan also increases connectivity to and from the cities of Nampa and Caldwell and around Canyon County and provides real and effective travel mode choices.
