  • Definitely worth the stop. Multiple places to sit or stand and enjoy the views. And you may even catch base jumpers taking advantage of the only bridge in the US where no permit is required to base...

  • Go to the visitors center and walk over to the viewing bridge. You get a great view of the bridge and river. There are benches to relax at while enjoying the view.

  • Absolutely breathtaking!!!!! 100% worth the stop. I could set here ALL day. There's parking on either side of the bridge & you can access both sides if you walk down the stairs and go underneath. As a bonus there was people free basing from the top we got to watch. It was spectacular. Only v wish we had a canoe or a boat to rent. I can't wait to go back.
  • This place is unreal. We got there and there were BASE jumpers jumping off the bridge. It was fantastic and a most see. Great parking and friendly people around. If you drive by Twin Falls, please stop by and check it out. Your won’t be disappointed.
