  • This bridge is very cool and even on a weekday we got to see base jumpers. The bridge is easily accessed from the Twin Falls Visitor center. It can also be accessed from the Best Buy / Home Goods...  more »
  • The Bridge itself is really an amazing sight! An engineering marvel. The visitor center area is very nice with gift shop and clean bathrooms. The most incredible thing to watch was the BASE jumping....  more »

  • This is a beautiful bridge (underneath)! As we were driving over it we saw a couple of base jumpers on the bridge. We stopped in the scenic outlook parking and walked down to the steps. The gorge is GORGEOUS!! Beautiful waterfalls, rocks, river! So glad we stopped for a few minutes to enjoy it.
  • Visitor center with good information and recommendations. Beautiful valley with Snake River belie Perrine Memorial Bridge. Easy access free parking with a walk out vantage point of the bridge. Worth the stop if only to Chronicle the Perrine Memorial Bridge.
