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 segment offers unique features along the south rim of the canyon.
A welcoming place to begin your journey is at the Twin Falls Visitor Center on trail's western leg. Traveling east from here, you will have a view of the beautiful Perrine Memorial Bridge and head right under the iconic structure. The bridge towers a whopping 500 feet above the Snake River. From the bridge, the trail runs about a mile farther on to Pole Line Road, where this segment ends. (If you travel west from the visitor center instead, you will come around the back side of a shopping area and into a residential neighborhood.)
After a gap, you can pick up the eastern leg of the trail in Shoshone Falls Park. The park's namesake 212-foot waterfall — referred to as the "Niagara of the West" — is a must-see.
After another gap, you can pick up the trail farther east in Dierkes Lake Park, where there is a loop around the lake. The park offers a plethora of recreational options, including swimming, fishing, picnicking, volleyball, and rock climbing.
Parking is available at the western trailhead at the intersection of Washington St. N. and Federation Rd., as well as at the Twin Falls Visitor Center (2015 Nielsen Point Pl.).
On its eastern end, parking and restrooms are available in Shoshone Falls Park and Dierkes Lake Park, though there is a nominal fee per vehicle in both parks.
