    Route Description for Ross Falls Hike

    Those seeking a short, but scenic adventure near Twin Falls, Idaho, will likely appreciate the Ross Falls Hike. This pleasant trail wanders through mixed woodlands adorned with lush undergrowth and along a meandering creek. Just a hop, skip, and a jump away from the road, you will reach the mesmerizing cascade that billows over the sheer rock face! Note that while you can explore this route year-round, spring is the best time to visit during the peak-run off-season.

    Setting out from the trailhead, take the trail signposted for the Ross Falls Trail. The first few steps of your adventure travel west before diverting southwardly, gradually climbing through the verdant forests alongside the meandering creek. Minding your footing on the rocky terrain as you ascend, the path will soon unfold to the sights of Ross Falls. Admire the scenes of the looming rock wall and continue to the base of the cascades.

    Explore the falls and rejuvenate your tired feet in the chilly alpine waters. When you are through exploring the waterfall, turn around and retrace your steps back to the trailhead.
