After a long journey, stretch your legs along the 5 miles of paved trail as you explore both sides this beautiful water fall on the Snake River. Winding through the heart of Idaho Falls, you will stroll past restaurants, shopping, art galleries, and so much more as you enjoy our beautiful summer weather.
At Upper Mesa Falls, a thunderous curtain of water — as tall as a 10-story building — pours over remnants of an ancient volcanic super-eruption. A mile south, Lower Mesa Falls repeats the performance, the river continually chiseling away at the solidified ash and lava. The beautiful Upper and Lower Mesa Falls are the last prominent waterfalls on the Snake River unaffected by manmade influences. A scenic walking path leads to excellent viewpoints.
