Location
Freeze-out Hill, so-called after the habit of early settlers locking or “freezing” their wagon wheels in order to slide down the hill, provides the main entrance to town. Emmett is less than half an hour from the Boise Town Centre mall and Interstate Highway 84, and only forty minutes from downtown Boise.


Activities
Black Canyon Dam on the Payette River, just five miles from town, is a great spot for water skiing, fishing and picnicking. Continue north on Highway 52 through Horseshoe Bend and you’ll be en route to the resort communities of Cascade and McCall.
