The Snake River Canyon Rim Trail offers jaw-dropping views and numerous park amenities in the south-central Idaho community of Twin Falls. Although the pathway is not completely seamless yet, each...
As of today, September 4, 2021, the description of the Snake River Trail is out of date. There is now a continuous trail from Shoshone Falls on the East to Washington Street on the West. I’m not sure of the exact distance, but it’s at least 5 miles 1 way, maybe a little longer. I ride it several times a week, weather permitting. The ride up out of Shoshone Falls is quite steep with hairpin turns. I have an electric bike so I can do it easily, but would have a hard time otherwise. I’m a 72 year old female. Younger athletic folks with good bikes can come up with a bit of extensive effort.
We started at the Shoshone Falls and pulled the hill up to the rim. We have ebikes so it was no big deal. The views are spectacular. We then went on through farm land, Evil Knieval’s failed attempt to jump the canyon location, residential areas and to the welcome center at the fabulous bridge in Twin Falls. We were able to watch a base jumper (unexpected treat). We then went about a mile beyond the welcome center and turned back. It was hot. Once you are up on the rim it’s level. The whole trail is paved. Worth it!
More trail is completed than what appears in the app. We went from the trails endpoint all the way to Shoshone Falls, going off track on roads once because of map inaccuracy. Return trip never used roads. Splendid views of Snake River and the falls and other rapids. Not a super long ride, but the area near the falls presents challenging hills.
It was a nice trail it has several beautiful views. Some steep hills , the trail is complete no gap any longer.
Twin Falls gas taken steps to acquire easements for the canyon rim trails which is cool. There is disconnect that goes through neighborhood s and its not marked near the shopping district. Then the trail ends at Eastland Road where there are no bike lanes to Falls Ave to Champion Rd which will then connect you to the East segment.
