Hike

The Idaho Falls Greenbelt is one of Idaho Falls charms located in the heart of Idaho Falls, next to the historic Idaho Falls downtown. The paved foot-trail is approximately 6 miles around, following the river plus brings you past the hotels and some of restaurants in Idaho Falls. The trail is enjoyed by bicyclists, joggers or pedestrians who just want to relax and check out the sites beside the 22 foot waterfall, stretching over 600 feet wide. You cross the Broadway Bridge (on the west bank) to get a great view of the entire length of the falls. The path takes you down Riverside Drive, through the South side of downtown Idaho Falls, past the War Veterans Memorial, past a scenic viewing area, alongside fisherman's park, and more.

This is a must for anyone visiting Idaho Falls. Very walkable and close to the historic downtown. Also, check out the Japanese Friendship Garden on the Sportsman Park island across the street. The cute garden faces the river and is a great spot to hang out and view the falls.
