Are you hoping to get some exercise this weekend? With autumn in the air, it’s a great time to add some steps to your pedometer by getting lost in your local corn maze, or stretch your legs as you walk through a pumpkin patch to pick out your jack-o-lantern. It’s also an ideal time to take a hike in the Boise Foothills. (Click on this link to check trail conditions.) Or take your bike out for a spin before the weather gets too cold. Or check out one of the events below to keep yourself, and your family, active this weekend.
