A must stop visit

One of the must go to scenic places in Idaho. Well kept board walks with railing provide safety while walking to the falls.

A must to see if you're in the area. Very relaxing in the middle of the woods. The river and waterfall and surroundings are just awesome.

Stopped in with family on a little side trip. We were on our way from Island Park to Bechler Ranger Station in YNP. It was a beautiful July day and enjoyed the view. A nice area. We'll visit it again when we're wandering along that path.

This is the perfect place to visit when all the Fall colors are turning. There was not to many people around, and it was so beautiful. The drive through the canyon, and then the falls, is truly breathtaking.

This was stop on our way to Yellowstone. We arrived early in the morning. There were no crowds and the falls were beautiful as the day began. The rainbows in the mist were gorgeous at the upper end of the falls where we visited. You should know that there are stairs to maneuver and a hilly walk up and down... More

Both falls and the Warm River Spring (very dusty dirt road) are great sights. We shot more pictures in this two hour loop than on any other attraction.

Stopped here on our way to Yellowstone from Craters Of The Moon. The Scenic Byway (Hwy 47) was pretty dull, until you got about 5 miles in. Then - very nice! This is a forest service attraction. The lower falls can be viewed from the campground off Hwy 47. There's a large parking lot that can easily accommodate the largest... More

I had half a day to spare while in Idaho Falls, ID and decided to rent a motorcycle from Chester's HD which was well worth the price. I drove to Upper and Lower Mesa falls, the roads were out of a magazine and a motorcyclist dream and the falls were amazing! It was quiet when I was there, but well... More

Took a long drive from Jackson on a somewhat rainy day to see the falls. Pretty long ride but the falls where beautiful. Nice walking paths. Not much else there but we found it a peaceful ride. Stopped in Driggs for lunch on way back.

Thank john b
