Oregon Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"This historic recreation ride along the Old Oregon Trail includes nice views of the Boise Valley from Bonneville Point. Tread: 1 mile of paved road 3 miles of Greenbelt pathway, 11 miles of doubletrack.The Oregon Trail–Bonneville Point–Greenbelt Loop ride features a historical tour of the countryside that approximately 300,000 emigrants passed through on wagon trains as they crossed southern Idaho to “greener pastures” in Oregon between 1840 and 1860. The cottonwood-lined Boise River was a refreshing sight to pioneers after a very hot and taxing trip across the dry Snake River Plain.Although much of the Boise Valley is settled today, the ride to Bonneville Point passes through the same sagebrush flat that pioneers crossed as they made their way to the river. Some of the old wagon ruts are still visible in the basalt cliffs between the upper bench and the second bench on the south side of the river."
