Idaho Rules of Civil Procedure Rule 43(f). View of Premises, Property or Things.

During a trial, the court, in its discretion, may order that the court or jury shall have a view of, (1) the property which is the subject of the action, or (2) a place in which any material fact occurred or in which any material thing is located, or (3) any other item, thing or circumstance relevant to the action. In jury trials the court shall order the jury to be transported as a group, under the charge of an officer appointed by the court, to the place where the view is to be shown to them. While the jury is conducting such a view, no person shall be permitted to speak with them on any subject connected with the trial of the action, except as authorized by the court, and only the appointed officer shall communicate with them in conducting the view pursuant to order of the court. A view by the court shall be conducted personally by the court after notice to all parties. Counsel shall have the right to be present at any view by the court or jury.
