The snake river canyon is what makes Twin Falls different. If it weren't the canyon, Twin Falls would come across as a pleasant, yet typical, medium sized town surrounded by agriculture. But there's this huge canyon ripping through the North End of town. This trail and bridge is the second best place to see it - the best being Shoshone... More

We stopped on our way north and walked the trail for a couple of miles. We were delighted to see that a group of enthusiasts were BASE jumping from the bridge to a landing area at the canyon floor. That made the trip worthwhile even with out the awesome views. This is a great trail with lots of overlooks and... More

Quite a site to see - it is breath-taking. I wish we had more time to see more of the site but we were traveling across the country and could not stay longer.

We took it from Shoshone Falls to the point where Evil Knievel jumped which is just a small hill of dirt now. Still very interesting to see what he attempted. The trail is well maintained and a very nice hike along the river with more views of the waterfall and nice canyon views.

The trail provides outstanding views of Shoshone Falls and the surrounding canyon. The trail ends at the site of Evel Knevil's 1979 motorcycle jump (not much to see really). The trail is paved though steep in some sections. Count on 3 - 4miles round trip. Hint: don't start from the stairs behind the concession stand, start from the trail further... More

Early morning is the best time to enjoy this trail-quiet and serene and in the summer it is cool then. Midday in the summer here is quite hot! Great views of the Snake River Canyon, the Perrine Bridge and you can even see the dirt ramp used for Evil Knievels attempt to jump the canyon!

The Snake River Canyon Rim Trail has several points of Interest: including the Perrine Bridge, Shoshone Falls and Dierkes Lake. Although we didn't take the time to swim at Dierkes Lake, we liked taking a 1.3 mile hike around the lake. From the parking lot, don't head towards the lake, but go left until you find the hiking map (not... More

This trail is just wonderful -- wide, and paved, plenty of room for groups of walkers to meet. There are many overlooks (some have benches) with amazing views of the canyon, bridge, and river. We were very impressed by this trail and enjoyed our visit so much. We had several small children along and it was a wonderful trail for... More

I work just a few steps from the trail so I try to take advantage as much as possible. It's wide and paved, with plenty of overlooks to view the canyon and Perrine Bridge. Watch for hawks, buzzards, ravens, crows, pelicans, seagulls, swallows, and doves in the air, and rock chucks and ground squirrels among the rocks. Dogs are welcome... More
