The visitor's center is being constructed so info is in a trailer and bathrooms are port a potty. Early morning sun made for great photos. We were lucky enough to see many people jumping (with a chute) off, including a person in a wheel chair! Nice little walk along the Snake River too.

The view of the bridge, canyon and water is spectacular. Also, we saw some parachute jumpers which was really fun to see but it's worth it to get out just for the views.

It is worth stopping and looking at the scenery - a good chance to see something different and stretch your legs

The bridge is cool, but the scenery at sunset is amazing! It was so pleasant to walk around, look at the Snake River, gaze down the canyon. One of my nicest recent photos is from there.

I was there in middle of June and luckily the day I visited the bridge was able to catch 2 base jumpers from the bridge to the river below. They glide down to a certain spot where the flag is along the Snake River at the bottom of the canyon. I was told it's the only legal spot they can jump off a bridge in the US? It's a deep canyon and I can see why the base jumpers love it as well as Evil Knievel as mentioned from other reviewer who made an attempt to cross the canyon. You can still see the area where it was attempted but per locals, it is private property. The locals that were there filled me in on the history of the bridge as well as the small park plaque near the bridge. You must walk under the bridge on the trail below. Very eerie feeling, as the heavy trucks and traffic pass above. Got a kick out of that. The creaks and the bending of the steel carry the sound in various ways. Great view on either side of bridge as there is a path way to walk, and worth making the time to walk keeping an eye on the bridge as you may see a base jumper.
Great photography points and viewpoints. If you like heights walk the bridge.
Interesting sight as well as Shoshone Falls so if you’re on the main highway 84 east or west through Idaho make a turn off to Twin Falls and the bridge is a couple miles off the main highway. Take a break there and visit the visitor’s center, nice folks, they will tell you about the bridge and other attractions in Twin Falls Idaho. It’s worth checking out and a better rest stop then the one coming in from the west.
