Looks can be deceiving. You get there first and see nothing , but farm land. Keep walking and you will find a great hidden falls and a nice area to take a swim. The only bad part is there's lots of poison ivy.

A fun family hike down Box Canyon State Park. There is a 5 dollar fee for parking at the trail head. The first mile is walking to the Canyons rim and is not much to write home about and can be quit hot so bring plenty of water. The hike down into the Canyon is mildly difficult but there is a guiding steal cable to hold onto so no gear is necessary. The Canyon its self is spectacular beautiful spring water and tons of vegetation and insect life. The head of the spring is not accessible as the trail leads west but there is a swimming section to about half a mile or so once you get down into the canyon were you can cool down from the hike. From the pond you can either head out the way you came or keep going west and loop back around up the rim and then back to the trail head.

Easy hike, starts out on a short stretch through the desert and comes up to one of the gems of southern Idaho. Beautiful, pristine, cold water the rest of the way through.

Be careful and make sure to watch out for poison ivy, it's everywhere. Best hike so far this year! The first bit of the hike is in the wide open desert, but even on a hot day it wasn't that bad. Then you drop down into the canyon and it's beautiful! Keep going after the walkway by the waterfall, there's crystal clear pools for swimming in!

Simple walk along some farms to an overlook. Nice canyon with river and geese. $5 to park in a dirt lot.
