There’s no shortage of waterfalls in Idaho, but among the coolest waterfalls is one of the most hidden, Fall Creek Falls.

Surrounded by greenery off the side of a small road in Swan Valley, Fall Creek Falls is somewhat hidden. You’ll probably have to bushwack your way through a brief but poorly marked trail to find it, but when you come to the clearing, you’ll get a spectacular up-close view of the falls. From the small landing adjacent to the falls, you’ll enjoy distant views that would extend to Wyoming, assuming you could see over the mountaintops.

There’s actually a small cave underneath the upper portion of the falls, which provides a unique view from underneath the water. Use caution, and prepare to get wet if you attempt to climb inside. The falls drop nearly 60 feet into the Snake River, and land upon a bed of rocks before running into the river.
