Oregon Trail—many signs and artifacts of this historic trail are evident around the region.  Retrace the trail once followed by a quarter of a million hopeful wanderers.

Jubilee Park—1350 acre park, 15 minutes from Sweet Pepper Ranch offers an awesome panoramic view of the Snake River Canyon, Owyhee Mountains and Boise Front. Jubilee Park offers equestrian trails, the George Nourse Shooting Range, historic and geological sites, ORV area, and even hang-gliding.

The World Center for Birds of Prey and Snake River Birds of Prey Conservation Area—located 35 miles south of Boise along 81 miles of the Snake River, 30 minutes from Sweet Pepper Ranch. The area has one of the densest population of nesting raptors in North America. This unique ecosystem, a combination of climate, geology, soils and vegetation, supports an extraordinary number of predators and prey. More that 15 different species nest on the high canyon walls. Nine additonal raptor species use the Snake River area as seasonal hunting grounds during migrations or as wintering areas. Birds of Prey NCA is particularly important for prairie falcons, North America’s only indigenous falcon.

Local wineries – several excellent Idaho wineries are within minutes of Sweet Pepper Ranch, offering food, music, festivals and of course wine tastings.
