FC: Freddy's Stack Rock Trail | Legacy to my Family...
1: Now, Stack Rock's anonymous benefactor has a name. And now, Fred Alleman can get the public praise he deserves. A military retiree who spent his professional life buying and renovating homes, Alleman spent much of his free time on hiking trails -- including the Ridge to Rivers trails around Boise. Six months ago, the residential real estate pro donated $1 million to help the city acquire 1,320 acres of elusive recreational real estate, the land surrounding the 5,895-foot Stack Rock in the Foothills. The area has long been off-limits. Now, the area will be open to hikers, cyclists and rock climbers. No worries. No need to "miss" a trail closure sign. And for good. And thanks in large part to Alleman, who was honored by city parks and recreation at a ceremony Saturday. Said Alleman last week, "I feel fortunate to be a contributor to the Stack Rock land acquisition." By The Idaho Statesman, Boise Jun. 15, 2010
