Shoshone Falls Park Idaho

Shoshone Falls Park-  Idaho near Twin Falls

Shoshone falls is a huge waterfall sometimes called Niagara of the west. The falls are 212 feet tall and 1, feet wide. There are several different overlooks at the park to view the falls. None are more than a few hundred feet from the parking lot. The water from the Snake River is always fluctuating depending on the time of year and how much they are letting through the dam above the falls. The gorge below the falls is very beautiful.

Once you enter the park the road winds down a hill towards the overlooks. There are several small waterfalls along here. I was there in winter once which made for lots of cool ice. In spring and summer it's like a small green oasis. There is another upper parking area that you can either walk to or park at with several picnic tables. The canyon rim trail starts here. If you walk a little ways down this paved trail you get a great full view of the falls and great views of the canyon. Keep your eyes open there are several other falls that can be seen from here in the spring. If you are either go to or from Boise to Utah then this is a very worthwhile detour to stretch your legs and enjoy the scenic Shoshone waterfalls.
