  • This is a beautiful bridge (underneath)! As we were driving over it we saw a couple of base jumpers on the bridge. We stopped in the scenic outlook parking and walked down to the steps. The gorge is GORGEOUS!! Beautiful waterfalls, rocks, river! So glad we stopped for a few minutes to enjoy it.
  • Visitor center with good information and recommendations. Beautiful valley with Snake River belie Perrine Memorial Bridge. Easy access free parking with a walk out vantage point of the bridge. Worth the stop if only to Chronicle the Perrine Memorial Bridge.
  • It's a bridge. A big one. People jump off it with the intention of... Well I don't know why, but the parachute to the bottom. Neat view though
  • Beautiful park with scenic views. You may even be able to see people who jump with parachutes. Its worth the time a little walk and see spectacular views
  • Great place to stop and walk around. You will see amazing views of the cliffs and the river. Go at sunset or sunrise. This is a great place to take kids, they have walls and barriers. Dogs are allowed here. You could spend 10-30 minutes here depending on how long you want to take in the views.
