Webster's Dam/Manmade Falls is an out and back trail located near Rexburg, ID that features a waterfall. The trail is rated as moderate and primarily used for mountain biking.
Fairly easy ride. The trail to the Dam is mostly covered by trees so make sure its been warm for a while before going to avoid the snow that sticks around for a while in the early months of the year. There are some fun downhill sections with some climbing as well.
Really fun hike, we bushwhacked back around the east end of the trail, back right before the last little canyon, got down to the river and there was a really cool waterfall and campsite, we went tried to go up to the main trail later by the waterfall and up a little ways there was a car, crashed right of the path. if you are looking for an easier hike you will want to turn left at the first junction. Really fun and enjoyable hike.
Took our 4wd vehicles down to the waterfall for a group activity. Easy driving, but it gets technical as you get closer - you'll want a spotter if you have a larger vehicle. I went in my Pathfinder and made it in and out without much trouble. Nice area for a gathering. Cows are common. There are some logs to cross over and get to the middle area where the creek splits and goes around you to a waterfall on either side.
We followed the directions given on the site. We stopped just short of the directions at a turnoff where a few vehicles were parked. From there you follow the huge power lines down to the dam, about 40 minute hike down. Some of the hills are very steep! I would go again but only if we drove an atv, razor or dirt bike just because the hills were pretty challenging. Once there the dam is very beautiful and there are ledges and boulders to sit on. There's a small grassy area to sit as well.
This is a pretty fun ride. Nice to get out there and stretch your legs. There are several hills that provide some fun descents. The climbs aren't too bad. We went pretty early in the year and there was still snow in the trail. I would wait until May at the earliest to go. The old dam at the bottom of the trail provides a great view worth seeing. Overall a fun trail.
