Bonneville Point

Bureau of Land Management, Idaho.

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 Reservoir also runs nearby.
