This scenic drive is a great alternative to the drive through the sagebrush desert of south central Idaho. The springs and waterfalls are beautiful and a visit to the state fish hatchery is interesting and fun for the kids.

It is a beautiful place to throw your tent out and enjoy. We had a dock to ourselves and fished until after dark. It was quiet and if we wanted could go swimming at the pool there. I plan on returning many times.

nice to see all the falls. Best time to go is in the spring the the water a melting. The only problem is they are on the other side of the road so picture taking is not the best, but to be enjoyed
