Not a hike, but beautiful views. It was very crowded near sunset. If you go just s bit further down the road, you still have great views, but space to yourself.

Was able to catch oxbow bend overlook at sunset. Spectacular views. Rumor has it that there is regular bear sightings here. We weren’t that lucky but still enjoyed our time

Cute scenic overlook off the main road. Well worth a few minutes to stop and take it all in.

Beautiful spot for sunrise photos. We saw a herd of Elk swim through and cross the river

Great spot for night photos as it’s a short walk down to the water and the reflection of the stars on the water can be seen

Not a hiking trail. This is an overlook for spotting wildlife, with some “trails” that get closer to the water. Good for dawn and dusk viewing

Nice area and beautiful views of the snake river. No sure why this is rated moderate. It's very easy and flat. Consider it easy.

Not an active trail. No trailhead. Some small trails along river- for fishing?
