We were travelling to Yellowstone and happened to stop over in Twin Falls, Idaho. Just by chance we heard about Snake River Canyon and got directions how to get there. If you pass by in the neighborhood I can recommend a visit here. Beautiful valley, with waterfalls and spectacular views.

For experienced backpackers this one is an absolute must! Not for the weak hearted (rattlers, poison ivy, hot and cold, water can be critical) but the wildlife both flora and fauna plus fabulous views around every bend and history galore. Did you know this area supported one million + sheep during WW1 which provided the K rations and clothing for... More

Walk along the edge /rim of the Snake River canyon. A great trail, that doesn't cost a thing to take a walk on the edge of a beautiful canyon ridge, Great views either way or as mentioned occasionally a base jumper if you’re around the bridge area. Great photo and video shooting opportunities along the ridge. I too had a... More

sunny sunny sunny deliciously sunny and a breathtaking view of the bridge and surrounding area ! We watched in amazement when daring young para-sailors jumped off the Perrine Bridge into the seemingly endless abyss of the Snake River Canyon far below, each one making an impressive and safe landing on the Canyon floor. There was quite a crowd and a... More

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
