8 Gorgeous Frozen Waterfalls In Idaho That Must Be Seen To Be Believed
For waterfall-chasers, it often comes as a surprise that Idaho is home to such an abundance of scenic cascades across the state – some that even top Niagara Falls in height! But while many of these spectacular falls are tucked away in the untamed corners of our stunning mountain ranges and require determined hikes to reach, others are renowned landmarks that draw thousands of visitors and photographers every year to be enchanted by their roaring, magnificent beauty. Fortunately, Idaho’s picturesque beauty doesn’t stop as the temperature drops; Idaho’s plummeting natural wonders often transform into glittering, icy spectacles during the winter and offer surprisingly unique photo ops and recreation opportunities for those willing to brave the chill. Here are eight waterfalls in the Gem State that are just as mesmerizing in the winter as they are during the spring.

Pretty spectacular, right? These glittering cascades are well worth the trip to see! While we can’t guarantee which of Idaho’s majestic falls will be frozen at any given time, taking one of our waterfall road trips is always worth it.
