I was the only bike I saw but no one really seemed to mind. Great alternative to driving to Shoshone Falls.

Road bikingGreat!

We went for a ride along the canton rim which is a paved path and very easy. We parked at the visitor center and went out both directions. At the end we watch the base jumpers going off the bridge. Fun ride.

Super beautiful and mostly flat until you get close to the falls, BUT the falls aren’t falling right now . Check before you walk 12 miles!

Very scenic view and we had fun doing this hike. Trail is flat so a running shoes will do just fine. We finished the hike and don’t regret it at all. The waterfalls was at the end of the hike and was breathtaking. Love this trail! Will come back again if we visit Idaho.

This recording is an out and back from the visitor center to west parking lot on Washington, then to the east parking lot on Eastland, then across the bridge and back. Shows the new sections of trail. Ps I was on a bike except for the bridge

Easy walk with lots of foot traffic but the views are worth every bit of it! Pics don’t so it justice.

Wouldn’t call this a hike at all but it’s a lovely walk around sunset! Lots to see and check out and not too hot. We started by the restaurant, Elevation and just went down about a mile and back for the after dinner walk. Was very nice!

Very beautiful canyon views! You can see Canyon Springs golf course down below, and it’s perfectly manicured and suuper cute - looked almost like hobbitland to me. The trail is paved, wide enough and pretty flat (at least at the start) - overall we all really enjoyed and it was a highlight for us! :)

WalkingGreat!

A nice paved trail along the canyon. Have walked/jogged/biked it numerous times from the end by Elevation Restaurant all the way to Shoshone Falls. Overall, its super easy and not much elevation change until you are going down/up at the Shoshone Falls end. It is mostly in direct sunlight, so it can get hot. But also it can get very windy up on the rim. Highly recommend this trail for a easy stroll or bike ride with some amazing views.

The east portion, especially from Eastland on, is a fantastic trail, easy, great for family with great photo opportunities and well-placed benches and viewpoints.

More of a walk than a hike. We walked about 1 mile in the vicinity of the bridge. We also got to see a few parasailers, that was fun!! I enjoyed this trial, though as many said, this popular section is paved and quite flat. However, you can get some amazing views of the bridge and into the canyon.

One of my favorite trails to walk/hike. It has been extended and connected, so one can look forward to great views of the canyon and river continously for several miles. From Shoshone Falls to the Evel Knievel jump site, there are some pretty steep hills, so I wouldn't put that part of the trail in the 'easy' category, but the 'moderate' category. I have seen hawks and eagles, porcupines, beavers, 'rock chucks,' and various other birds and wildlife. It's peaceful and beautiful.

Walking

This is more of a walking trail than a hiking trail. It is paved throughout and in various stretches, you may walk along the Snake River (beautiful with waterfalls and dramatic vistas), near a busy road or through a residential neighborhood. During our visit the end near Auger Park was blocked due to construction. One can drive to the parks at either end of the trail and enjoy walking portions of the trail there as well.

This trail is heavily trafficked. Heads up that bullsnakes can be found sunning on the black pavement in the afternoon. Completely paved trail, beautiful views with a few benches at lookout points. Evil Kanevil's jump site is along this trail, south side of trail near Hankin's Rd, with a billboard containing information. For a real treat, visit at sunrise or sunset!

This is a paved walkway inside Twin Falls with several good viewpoints of the canyon and the 486-foot-high Perrine Bridge. If your timing is right, you may even see base jumpers. If you're not too afraid of heights, you can add to this by crossing the bridge on the walkway on one side, walking under on the north side, and crossing back on the walkway on the other side.

Amazing trail. You can run this entire trail, which is paved, but amazing views. I ran part of it then headed down the canyon and picked up some actual dirt trails. Water fall views are amazing
