I get here and it was a cemetery. Wrong address maybe?

I would definitely do it again. We just went and it’s March. So there was snow, but it was enjoyable! Definitely a great adventure for any time of the year!!! The area was beautiful!!!

Well Groomed even on New Year’s Day.

The Lower Mesa Falls are impressive! But this nature trail is a bit deceiving. From the Lower Falls lookout up by the road it appears that the trail ends right above the falls, but the view is obstructed by trees. There IS an unconventional trail created that brings you right down to the falls, but it's hard to find that trail down off the cliff.

HINT: go to the lookout by the road. You can see the trail that drops down off the ledge. Take a photo if it would help. Then go down to this nature trail and then you'll know where to look for this added trail that leads down to the falls.

this is an area one could go for a stroll, calling it a "hike" is exaggeration.

Very nice little hiking/walking path. There were moose on the trail, so watch out!!!

I really enjoyed this, beautiful view of the lower mesa falls. Most rewarding if you take the steep hike down through the rocks to be right next to the river and water falls.

This was a beautiful trail. Close to the river and in shade for most of the path. We took our dog, and he had a blast. Not much to see at the end of the path but the whole walk was worth it.

I biked this trial on a Saturday morning. I only saw one person on the way out and a few on the way back. It is a slight incline on the way out, the entire time. So coming back down is a breeze. Bring bear spray.

Great 2 mile trail starting at the upper Mesa falls and going to the lower. Both Falls are amazing, but the upper is breath-taking as you can stand right beside it. The nature trail leaves from the upper Falls parking lot and is an easy hike on dirt with a bit of gravel in the beginning. Ends at a great view looking down on lower falls.

very kid friendly nature walk

It would be fun if we had come to dirt bike or something, but it wasn’t worth the $5 fee to hike. We drove around and decided to head elsewhere.

It was a nice stroll along the river. It was a little hard to find. Who knew a trail could begin at an Exxon parking lot?

Normally I hate these kinds of "trails" however, the forest service did a great job to make you still feel like you're in nature and not just walking on a boardwalk. Plus, the wonderful waterfall is a bonus.

Very beautiful trail, plus very easy.
Explore around at the lower falls end of the trail and you can find trails leading to the top of the falls and a little further down the river. But wear shoes with decent tread if you want to do those- they are steep and slippery.

We thought this was a peaceful, easy walk. Lots of wildflowers and cattails. Pretty views of the river. Mostly paved, plus boardwalks and a few benches. We walked all the way to the railroad bridge at the end of the trail. Just over 1 mile one way from the Riverview Cemetery parking lot. Bring insect repellent. Kid friendly. Runs alongside a sewer facility—just ignore that part, everything else is really beautiful.

beautifull!! the falls is breath taking..

Very beautiful! Easy hike and a lot of areas to take photos of.

Super pretty, kid, stroller and dog friendly. Lots of wildflowers and great views of Henry’s Fork. Great for trail running or a family walk/bike ride with kids.

This is a great spot to take little and not so little kids on a little walk down to beautiful waterfall views. This is a favorite spot we take family from out of state when they come to visit.

Next to the sewer plant. Was very smelly. Ends at the railroad tracks. Pretty anti-climatic.

Just a fun place to wander around, take pictures of dunes, or ride motorized vehicles. No trail.

Wanted an easy, enjoyable hiking experience for my 4 year old, 2 year old, and 1 year old and this trail did not disappoint! We will definitely be back.

The trail itself is very easy, flat, and wide. It offers two great, wide open views towards the middle and at the end. You don't get a very good view of the lower falls from the main trail, so if you can, I would recommend taking the side trail down.

To get to the edge of the lower falls, you need to do quite a bit of moderate scrambling on an open-faced talus field. It gets pretty steep, but if you are able, the view of the lower falls is fantastic right from the edge!

One of my favorite places while living in Idaho -- haven't been on this trail since 2016, but the views never disappoint! Be aware there is a per car fee, $5 a day (unless recently gone up), but don't let that deter you!

Took Kids for a quick ride trying out new mountain bikes. They loved it and had to ride it a second time. Easy to get to also.

Flat, easy trail walk. Some paved areas. Easy to access trailhead right off the road next to the cemetery. A fun walk along side the river. Several benches to stop and rest or eat at. Several man-made bridges are fun for the kids. Plenty of wildlife tracks in the snow. Signs along the way tell about the area and wildlife. Great for kids and family.
