This Might Just Be The Most Beautiful Hike In All Of Idaho
For limitless hiking options and epic Gem State scenery, Eastern Idaho is all too often overlooked. But tucked away in Swan Valley, the Palisades Creek trail is perfect in every season. Wildflowers, changing leaves, abundant wildlife, and two pristine mountain lakes will capture your heart. But while visitors to the area are often captivated by the sub-alpine lakes, there’s something simple and idyllic about the special, winding creek setting near Idaho’s border that is equally special… not to mention the breathtaking waterfall canyon! It’s the absolute perfect family-friendly hike.
