Hike

The view of Shoshone Falls is beautiful year round but it is simply breathtaking during spring runoff when the water levels are high and they roar so hard you can feel the mist hundreds of feet above the water. There are multiple platforms for viewing as well as information placards and a little gift stand. The park is owned and managed by the city of Twin Falls who charge a fee of $3 per carload (as of 4/1/2017).

The canyon rim trail goes up the canyon wall on the Southwest end of the falls and continues along the rim taking you to the site of Evel Kneival's 1974 attempt to jump the Snake River Canyon. To the jump site and back is about 2.5 miles round trip.

We took the kids while it's still really high water levels. It was incredible. We were there about 11am and it was just perfect for a rainbow along the canyon. It was really packed, the line of cars was long and parking was difficult to find. I'm guessing all that is because of the high water levels. When we left just before noon, the line of cars was way longer. The waterfalls were absolutely incredible though. Everything was pretty wet up by the platforms as we were getting a mist the whole time. It was great to see it at high water levels. We'll have to go back and see it "normal" another time.
