Falls are surprisingly bigger than expected. Started at the Upper Falls, and stopped at the Lower Falls lookout on the way down. Great for families with smaller kids as the walkways are very easy to navigate.

Mesa Falls is a hidden gem in Eastern Idaho. This area is so beautiful, and the falls are impressive. If you are passing through this area, you MUST check it out. You'll be surprised at the power of these falls that you've likely never heard of until now!

Beautiful, great place to visit. If you go in the summer there are fees. My wife and I went in October and there were no fees. There are upper falls and lower falls. Apparently the lower falls is a nice place to snowshoe or cross country ski, wanted to do it, just didn't happen this last winter. Fall colors on the road up to Mesa Falls are really pretty too. Made a great lunch picnic area, I imagine it would be a little crowded in the summer. But in the off seasons it is easy to find a picnic table at the lower falls.

The drive is just OK, but the falls are spectacular. One year we hiked to the falls by snowshoe from the parking lot below. It was about a 6 mile out and back hike. Even though it was February and extremely cold, we worked up quite the sweat. The falls were amazing in the winter.
