Description

Jump Creek Falls is nestled into the back of a canyon, and unless you hit it mid day, it'll likely be mostly covered in shade from the canyon walls. Great in the winter just to look at, or in the summer to take a break from the heat of the Idaho sun. The pool below the falls makes a nice and easy swimming spot. Bring a towel and enjoy!

Short Hike: Depending on if you park in the lower or upper parking lot, it's an easy 1/4 to 1/2 mile hike to the waterfall.

Family Friendly: Little to no elevation gain, short distance and in the summer, there's a nice pool to splash around in below the waterfall.

Gem Type: Waterfall
