Horseshoe Bend is located on a horseshoe-shaped bend of the Payette River along the scenic highway 55 about 19 miles north of Boise. A small, growing, rural community of 7,362, Horseshoe Bend was originally settled as a gold miners’ staging area, as they panned the Payette River.
Horseshoe Bend is the home of an annual banjo festival, a national pro rodeo, and a fall festival held in May, June, and October, respectively. The Thunder Mountain Line, a scenic railroad, is also based in Horseshoe Bend. Residents of Horseshoe Bend enjoy a tranquil rural lifestyle and community, while still having easy access to the more urban cultural opportunities of Boise.
