Bonneville Point Section of the Oregon Trail

Description:

At Bonneville Point, visitors can see ruts carved more than 150 years ago by the wagon wheels of westbound emigrants on the Oregon Trail and learn about the pioneers' long westward journey and how the city of Boise got its name. The site also features outstanding panoramic views of the Boise Valley and the Snake River Plain.

Directions:

From Boise, travel east 2.5 miles on Interstate 84 to the Blacks Creek exit. Turn left onto Blacks Creek Road; drive about 3.5 miles; turn left at the sign marked "Historical Site"; and proceed for 1 mile to the site.
