The Perrine Bridge

This famous bridge is named after the founder of Twin Falls, and it is a popular attraction for the amazing views, and also because it’s one of the few places you can BASE jump without a special permit from the city. It’s also the 8th tallest bright in the US!

Federation Point

Federation Point is where the Canyon Rim Trail begins, and also offers wonderful views of Centennial Waterfront Park, Canyon Springs Golf Course, and the famous Perrine Bridge. We love the view from up here!

Dierkes Lake

Dierkes Lake is a popular spot for summer fun! This 191 acre park has plenty of room for a cookout or a fun day in the sun with the family. Come see for yourself and cool off in the lake on those hot summer days!

Shoshone Falls Park

At over 200 feet tall, Shoshone Falls is a breathtaking site that pictures don’t do justice. These falls are also in the Snake River Canyon, like many of our other favorite attractions, and is about 2 miles downstream from Twin Falls. Learn more by clicking on the picture.

The Visitors Center

The Visitors Center can be found at the base of the Perrine Bridge. Here you can find all sorts of information, displays, and exhibits featuring current and historical information about the Twin Falls and Snake River Canyon areas!

Vineyard Lake

Vineyard Lake is a little more difficult to get to than most of these other attractions, but if you’re up for the adventure it’s definitely a rewarding one! The water in the lake is cold year round, as it’s fed by one of the canyon’s springs. There’s plenty of swimming and great views, and there’s even a waterfall here too!

Herret Center
