Husband and I lost the trail for a bit and added an extra half mile because we needed up on a 50 in/XC ski trail but it was still a great hike. Saw several ruffed grouse and meet some people on the trail who’d seen moose.

Fun easy trail with the kids. Awesome to see base jumpers jump off the bridge and see where they land.

Gorgeous views of the multiple falls. Main fall did not have water going over on this day but was still full of wonderful sites to see. Cash only to park.

First out of 2018! Going to try biking it Thur, with Dorinda.

Good long walk!

Beautiful views, easy

It was breathtaking and you can kayak or paddle board up to the falls from twin falls on the snake river, loved the views and the scenery... it was priceless views

Pretty awesome little drive up with a slight walk on a pathway. Easy peasy, no effort... but what a view!! Great to stretch the legs and there’s a beautiful park to let the dogs run, family picnic, etc.

I have been on this trail many times. It’s not too challenging to hike with some inclines and water crossings. This trail can get very overgrown at times and does have a lot of loose rocks to be cautious about. There are several overlook areas with incredible views. I have run into a rattlesnake on this trail so do be aware of your surroundings. Overall this is a great hiking trail.

Paved trail, but unbelievably gorgeous views, especially at sunrise and sunset. Flat and straightforward, but such a unique experience running alongside a canyon ridge so high up. Highly recommended if you are in the area and want an easy run/bike/walk with awesome views.

spectacular view on the bridge going in to twins Falls and the waterfall it's amazing to take your family with you

Great little walk along the river! Very quick and easy.

Asphalt trail that wraps around and through houses in some places. It’s a great trail, but is more for biking or for locals to enjoy an evening stroll.

Do not miss this. Incredible. Dogs allowed it on leash, but please pick up after your pet! There are stairs to the look out spots so all humans and pets need to be able to do the steps.

Loved finding the waterfall, hanging out by the river, and watching people jump off the bridge. Turned around just as we reached the bridge, but we should have kept going. Looking forward to going back soon!

We walked about 2-3 miles to Shoshone Falls. Wide paved trail. There are a few small hills to tackle. We took some great pictures of the falls.

Just moved to Idaho and Visiting Shoshone falls was our best adventure out here! The falls are truly breathtaking. I understand why it has the renowned name of “The Niagara Falls of the Mid West”. Absolutely beautiful. To get a better, head on view of the falls you can take an easy walk up to another look out. We did the Moderate trail and hiked up through the brush on man made trails on the hill. Once your past those you will continue your walk on a paved road until you reach the look out. Loved every second of being there! Dog friendly too! I advise to go during the week, it is less crowded. They have bathrooms and a cool shop to buy food and souvenirs.

This is a favorite stop for me every time I'm passing through Twin Falls. Surprisingly, not many people walk up to the higher observation deck, which offers better views of the falls and better photo opportunities, as its not in the mist.

Being able to go behind the waterfall was awesome! It was a cool place to take pictures and not too hard to get to. You have 2 options on how to get to the waterfall, at the end of the decline where you can initially see the waterfall has a trail down to it, or you can go all the way down the road on climb up the hill to the waterfall! Very pretty and will come back soon!

The Mogensen Trail was very fun. It contained a lot of waterfalls and you would get to walk right by the water. The only part of the trail I would consider difficult for some people this one part of the trail. The part had very steep stairs that seemed that it would be difficult for some people.

Super fun, lots of extra spots to explore along the trail and brought a five year old along! She thought it was fun and moderately difficult.

Great hike. The start and finish is steep (medium level) but the rest of the hike is flat and follows the river. We’re here in April and there were 5 waterfalls!

Nice concrete trail with a beautiful view of the Snake River. I ran this trail several times when I stayed in Twin Falls in late May 2017. There were waterfalls, marmots, ground squirrels, and a variety of riparian birds along the trail as well. There is plenty of parking at the visitor's center. People were parasailing off of Perrine Bridge; it was neat to watch.

Good hike, pretty easy, not too steep. Very pretty scenery, transitioning from Aspen, to dense pine and then to the top of the hill which is covered in wildflowers (at least in mid June). Great views of the area from up top. Coming down was strange, we ran into a spot where the trail was absolutely riddled with giant fallen trees, not sure if they are thinning forest here but most of them looked to be uprooted and toppled. Could have traversed the maze of horizontal trees but instead found alternative route that connected back to the loop. Overall fun hike!

Not sure if we really hiked this trail or a nearby one along the river. Nice views of the bridge. Very narrow trail flanked by lots of waist- to shoulder-height vegetation. Smelled amazing but my friend had an allergic reaction to something we brushed up against, so if you're prone to that sort of thing wear long sleeves.

Nice waterfall with patches of icey snow (early march). Short hike up has excellent view of gorge area. Not that hard or long.

Not really a trail, but still a beautiful waterfall. Especially since it is right off the interstate.

I'm not sure I would call this a trail, but it is a trek on the grade. A narrow road that is heavily travelled. People biking, walking, or driving all need to be mindful of each other and give plenty of space.
