Family visited this past summer. Thought we would head to Jump Creek. Forgot it was a holiday weekend and the place was packed. The trail leading to the swimming hole was a zoo. People and dogs... For those of you who absolutely can't do anything...More

We have been twice, September and October. Went during the week, the hike to the waterfall is really short, but definitely beautiful! There are other much longer hikes but we just did the waterfall. A lot of climbing and exploring you can do.

A short hike form the path and you'll get to this little gem of a waterfall and natural pool. Take the kids and have a blast. Get out and see Idaho!

Fantastic for a winter hike. Beautiful ice crystals on the water make it fun to take photos. The falls are half frozen with water still shooting down the cliff. Love this hike Summer or Winter. Not sure about THIS Winter... More
