Best route from Boise, ID to Bend, OR

Hi all- we are traveling from Boise to Bend on our next leg of our trip and wanted to see what would be the most ideal route.

We are towing a 41' FW and have had a great experience with it so far on our 7k mile journey this summer, but had a bit of a white knuckle experience coming out of Jackson Hole by taking the wrong route into Victor, ID with a 10% grade...don't want tondo that again

Thank you

If ideal is getting from point A to B: I would take the exit on the west side of Ontario, to Vale and stay on 20 through Burns to Bend.

I like Good Sam, trip planner, you can also add campgrounds, it shows miles between stops to plan your days

This was our route when we made the trip in 2014.

Thank you @TyCreek, this is the route I was favoring. Seems the biggest grade is 5% going that route.

We took 20 into bend and it was a great route for our rig. It made for a tired driver once we got into Bend, but all is well and we are settled in to our new spot for a few weeks.
