With two different waterfalls a mile apart, there’s much to see at Mesa Falls in Ashton, Idaho. Upper Mesa Falls are particularly impressive, as water roars into the remains of an ancient volcano that once erupted and spewed ash all over the country.

A well-maintained scenic walkway provides spectacular views of the falls at a safe distance. However, in the wintertime, you’ll need skis or a snowmobile to access the visitor center.
