Waterfall Nature / Park
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. Put Shoshone Falls into our Twin Falls vacation builder and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.
