The Ultimate Eastern Idaho Waterfalls Road Trip Is Here... And You Need To Do It
There’s nothing more delightful than happening upon a waterfall. And here in Idaho, we have quite a few awesome cascades dotting the state! As part of our epic waterfall road trips series, we’ve put together yet another spectacular adventure – this time, focusing on the often-overlooked eastern side of the state. This road trip clocks in at a little over five hours; however, we definitely recommend a weekend road trip out of it in order to make the most out of your drive and experience. Get a taste of Yellowstone’s outskirts, dip your toes in swirling watersheds, and experience a hidden oasis (or two) right here in the Gem State! Ready to chase some of the most magical waterfalls in Eastern Idaho? Be sure to bring some hiking boots for this one!
You know you want to experience all of this Idaho beauty in person, so what are you waiting for? Go forth and enjoy this small taste of the Gem State’s natural (and man-made) wonders! Stay safe, and please remember to leave no trace.

Are there any secret waterfalls in Idaho?
Is there anything more enchanting than happening upon a hidden waterfall while on a hike in the Idaho wilds? That's exactly what you'll do at Sheep Falls, a majestic secret waterfall located along the Falls River. Located near the southwest (and rarely used) entrance to Yellowstone National Park, Sheep Falls is a sight definitely worth uncovering for yourself. Getting there is quite the adventure, but rest assured that you'll be adequately rewarded for your efforts! Sheep Falls is simply a breathtaking sight. Most visitors observe the falls from a section of the river that forks off of the main section. The water cascades over a rock ledge before falling into a foaming pool below. The roar of the water here is amazing, and its majesty will leave you speechless. This is easily one of the best waterfall hikes in Idaho.
