"Eagle's Nest" is the name given by Samuel Lancaster to this small viewing area when he designed it as part of the Columbia River Highway. Originally the view consisted of the river and the town of Bonneville. Later it was a good place to watch construction of the Bonneville Dam. The original Eagle's Nest was eventually destroyed, probably during the construction of the second powerhouse at the dam. A new, simpler "Eagle's Nest" was built in 1996 as part of the reconstruction of this part of the highway as a trail.
