Chief Eagle Eye Reserve
451 N. Quarry View Pl., Boise
Chief Eagle Eye Reserve is a 49 acre site in Boise's East End acquired in the 1990s.
The East End Neighborhood Association and Boise Front Coalition were heavily involved with the protection of this property as part of an effort to create residential development nearby. Native Americans once inhabited the Boise Valley are said to have gathered at a remote site, known as Castle Rock, in the foothills where an outcropping of rocks dramatically jets out and touches the sky. At that time, nearby geothermal hot springs fed into small creeks and formed bathing ponds frequented by the Shoshone, Bannock and Paiute tribes.
Hours of Operation
