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. This scenic vista sweeps the entire Treasure Valley. The site is also an access point for the Oregon Trail and a place to hike, picnic, and view wildlife.

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.
