Gorgeous views of the river the whole way! Super easy flat trail. We were the only ones on it since it's mid September and just finished raining and was on the chilly side. Love the rock walls that line the river.... makes for some beautiful pictures!

Many large and small birds - grouse, hawks, etc. there are also many eagles nests in dead pines- Just gotta look up. When you get to the end where it over looks the falls, look left while sitting on the bench and the nest may still be there. Pretty flat land, nothing strenuous at all. After the bench, there's a trail that continues down towards the water.

Scenic trail that parallels the Henry's Fork River. Observed lots of wildlife and bird species. Saw ospreys, Western Tanagers, ruffed grouse, Green Tailed Towhee, yellow warblers, mountain chickadees, northern flickers, bald eagle, red tailed hawk, Townsend's Solitaire, and even a Townsend's Warbler. Hiked to where we could see the waterfall, which is across the river. Great hike, beautiful woods and scenery, and not too much elevation change.

Nice trail. Very easy walk along the N Fork of the Snake. The dam is at the confluence of the Buffalo River.
