E SHAW MOUNTAIN RD
A 600-acre parcel around Five Mile Creek above Rocky Canyon Road
and below Aldape Summit was donated to the city by Allen and Billie
Dee Noble in 2003. This land covers a few prominent ridge
tops in the east Boise foothills. The Nobles have allowed the
public to access their land since they purchased it in 1972, thus
it is popular with hikers, mountain bikers and horseback
riders. It is of historic significance as well because the
old road from Boise to Idaho City passed through the property.
Five thousand dollars from the Serial Levy Funds were spent
on land transaction costs. The market value of land at
time of transaction was six million dollars.
