Bonneville Dam from the Eagle's Nest (Steve Hart)

The Eagle's Nest (Steve Hart)

Description

Just east of the Tooth Rock Viaduct, there's a one-car sized turnout on the guard rail. Lancaster designed this as part of the original road and he called it the Eagle's Nest. Originally the view here consisted of the river and the small town of Bonneville. Later, it was a good place to watch the early construction of Bonneville Dam. There are several anecdotal tales of collisions when moving cars hit stopped cars here.

The original Eagle's Nest was destroyed much later, probably during construction of the second powerhouse at the dam. A new "Eagle's Nest" was constructed as part of the 1996 rebuild of the trail.
