 Bonneville Point           

Stand in the same spot where Captain Benjamin Bonneville and his expedition party overlooked the valley he named Les Bois, site of the city that today bears the same name — Boise. 

The view takes in the entire Treasure Valley.  The site is also an access point for the Oregon Trail and a place to hike, picnic, and view wildlife.  A mountain bike trail to Lucky Peak also runs nearby.

Location 
Ten miles east of Boise, Idaho: take the Blacks Creek exit (#64) off Interstate 84. Travel north on Blacks Creek Road four miles, then follow signs to Bonneville Point.
