The Rugged Hike To Idaho’s Tallest Waterfall, Goat Falls, Is Worth Every Single Step
The Gem State is filled with many beautiful drive-up waterfalls, like the famous Shoshone Falls in Twin Falls or Upper Mesa Falls near Ashton. However, Idaho’s tallest waterfall isn’t so easily found. Located at the end of a rugged hiking trail in the Sawtooth Wilderness, finding Goat Falls makes for an adventure to remember. Traversing this 8-mile trail can be a challenge, but you’ll find that it’s so worth it once you get a view of the majestic falls at the end. After all, it’s the tallest in Idaho by a long shot and it’s an unforgettable sight!
