The best time is usually late Spring, but this year is a bit dry. When the water is running, it's an amazing sight! There are also places to sit on the grass and relax and take it all in. Also has some hiking trails…Worth the stop.

These are beautiful water falls. A must see in the spring early summer when the falls are at their best.

This is one of the country's best kept secrets! A natural wonder of beauty and awe. It's like the Niagra of the West. You won't be disappointed. It's on the Snake River. Great overlooks for viewing and photographing. The flow is particularly stunning with the spring snow melt and runoff, about May/June. There's a small park entrance fee, about $4... More

Beautiful view of the Snake River Canyon. Taller than Niagra Falls. Affordable entrance fee to park. Especially beautiful in Spring.

If you visit during full peak, the falls are truly spectacular. Surrounding it is a lovely shady park area to stroll or picnic.

Everyone should see this at least once in their lifetime. Pick a time when the river is running high.

You're not likely to see quite as much water pouring over the edge as the Niagara - that's unusual - but it's still quite the sight.

I'd passed by Twin falls hundreds of times and didn't even know it existed. It is absolutely spectacular. The entrance fee was very reasonable. We held onto our children really tightly. The overlooks have very long drop offs. We didn't visit in 2013, but I do believe it was in September. 2013 that was the only option available to select.... More

What can you say about a cool waterfall that hasn't already been said. Visiting this place is fantastic and the view is perfect right from the outlook point. Would be a shame to be passing through this area and not take 30 min to visit Shoshone falls. Highly recommend especially if you like the sounds and sights of a very... More

My husband and I are traveling across the country. Entering into Idaho from I-84, I thought to myself that the state is flat, plains, farmland and cows. And then there is this beautiful canyon in the middle of nowhere. Just breathtaking in all it's grandeur! The falls were slightly more than a trickle. I think the water is being diverted... More
