Shoshone Falls is located on the Snake River about 3 miles northeast of Twin Falls, Idaho. The waterfall is 212 feet high which makes it 45 feet higher than Niagra Falls, and it's often refered to as the "Niagra of the West". The best time to visit the Falls is spring and early summer when the Snake River is flowing at its best. Diversion of Snake River water for irrigation in the late summer can significantly diminish Shoshone Falls. The City of Twin Falls operates a park at the falls that has a large picnic area, concession stand, restrooms, and a short trail with several overlooks of the waterfall. I visited the Falls in July of 2020, and the park entrance was $5.00. Lastly, let me state the obvious by saying most of the following photos are of falling water.
Many Photos of Shoshone Falls
The following photos were taken from various overlooks along a short trail on the south side of the Snake River. One of the overlooks is the spot where Evel Knievel attempted to jump the Snake River in a rocket.
The Snake River enters Snake River Canyon below the falls on its way to Twin Falls. The canyon is some 400+ feet deep by the time it reaches Twin Falls, and people BASE jump off a bridge spanning the canyon in Twin Falls. (I refer you to the photoassay, BASE Jumping in Twin Falls).
