Known as “The Niagara of the West,” Shoshone Falls are a 65 m (212 ft) high and 300 m (1,000 ft) wide wonders of nature. These waterfalls are actually 14 m (45 ft) taller than Niagara's. Admire the falls and the scenic surroundings from the observation platforms. Continue exploring on the hiking trails, or relax in the picnic area. A play area and restrooms are also available. If you're up for a longer visit, head to the launch platform for Evel Knievel’s famous attempt to clear the Snake River Canyon, which is located 3 km (1.8 mi) from the falls. Admission is charged per vehicle at the parking lot. Add Shoshone Falls and other attractions to your Twin Falls trip itinerary using our Twin Falls trip itinerary builder app.
Shoshone Falls reviews
The drive to the falls is beautiful and the falls are worth seeing! Not crowded this time of year and some lingering fall colors made it beautiful. more »
Was pretty disappointed to see private homes all over the place. This is what happens when we hand over our country’s precious natural resources. Sad. Bears Ears is next. more »
I visited on a Sunday in July. Parking lot was full, but we found parking lot. There is an easy view to the falls in this park, and then there is the long trail. The trail is paved. Starting from the park, the trail is up hill, not a lot of shade, and it can be draining on a hot day. So take a lot of water, and go dress appropriately! The trail has nice views of the falls, the river, and the canyon. Expect to spend 3 hours to fully enjoy this!
Shoshone Falls is a real hidden gem. We had passed by this location a number of times on our way to Boise or Oregon and never new about it! The entrance fee is something like $5.00 and well worth it. The falls are breathtaking. Looking forward to visiting this place at different times including next winter! Next year we are planning on kayaking along this river, just down from the falls.
