The Little Known Natural Oasis Hiding In Idaho That’s Impossible Not To Love

Swan Valley, Idaho is a small slice of heaven on the eastern border of Idaho and Wyoming. Just a short drive away from Idaho Falls and Yellowstone National Park, this breathtaking region features mesmerizing rural beauty, gorgeous hiking trails, hidden lakes, and a natural Idaho charm that makes it a true Gem State haven. But cascading gloriously over the mountainside in dozens of veil-like strands into the Snake River is one of the most picture-perfect oases in the state: Fall Creek Falls, the town’s crowning jewel. Lush and scenic, this oasis is treasured by locals but surprisingly unknown to the majority of Idahoans. One visit will take your breath away, but the more you explore the nooks and crannies that make this haven so special, the more you’ll fall in love!

But since pictures don’t quite do Fall Creek Falls justice, check out this drone video for a bird’s-eye view of this gorgeous waterfall as it cascades into the river:

A huge thank you to David Waterman for the footage! Be sure to check out his channel on YouTube for more Idaho goodness.

If you’ve never explored this gorgeous part of eastern Idaho but feel inspired to hike, photograph, and enjoy this natural wonder, take a gander at some of our other articles to make the most of your trip to this wonderful oasis.
