Quick history lesson & scenic view
A scenic view and a brief history lesson are two gains you’ll make by visiting Diversion Dam in Boise. Located on the Boise River about 7 miles southeast of the city along Warm Springs Avenue, this dam is on the National Register of Historic Places. There doesn't appear as though there’s an option for a tour of the facility, but there’s a display with brief information about it. It’s also easy to take photos of the site. There’s a small area across the dam to park cars and a bike path between the road and dam, so watch out for cyclists.
