“Base Jumping Nirvana”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

It's totally legal in Twin Falls Idaho for base jumpers to jump off the huge 1,500 feet long and 486 feet high Perrine Bridge above the Snake River. That's how it should be too!
and every time base jumpers are in town, there's unknowing drivers on the road, crossing the bridge who are calling 911 fearing that folks are jumping off the beautiful iron bridge. The emergency services really don't mind as its an attraction to Twin Falls and they get informed in advance.

There's a viewing platform near the bridge as well as a canyon rim footpath providing a lovely walk to view the splendor of the Iron bridge as well as take in the golf courses both sides of the Snake River running through the 500 foot high canyon.

A must see of Idaho, with lots of cool bars and restaurants in Twin Falls to make at least a full day of visiting Twin Falls.

“The Bridge from a Local”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

I have grown up in Southern Idaho and the Bridge is one of the great treasures for visitors. The bridge stands 482 ft above the Snake River and spans the canyon for nearly a half mile. The site is a world-wide destination for Base Jumpers and you will see them jump throughout the year. There is a large mall to the south of the Bridge and a Visitor's Center on the west side. You can walk out on the bridge and look east to Evel Kenevil's Jumpsite or look west and see two beautiful golf courses that sit in the bottom of the canyon. There is a walking trail along the south rim that allows you to hike along the river with parking in the adjacent mall.

You can walk on both sides of the bridge to view the Snake River. Bring your binoculars to view the waterfalls.

“Perfect way to walk off breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

My wife and I drove in from Jackpot Nevada to go visit and walk through the malls in town after breakfast at the local i Hop. After breakfast we strolled over to see the view of the Snake River and the Bridge......amazing!!!...head left along the pathway for about a kilometer and take the road down to the bottom of the canyon.....enjoy the view and then walk back up!! a very good workout with spectacular scenery. Wear your workout gear and runners.......We were not prepared and did it in Jeans and shoes .......one of the best hill workouts I've ever done....
Enjoy!!
