Magic Valley, Hagerman area, Snake River, Snake Falls

Waterfall: USA, Idaho, Magic Valley, Hagerman area, Snake River, Snake Falls

What`s it like

A 150 yards wide sinuous ledge, approximately 20-30 ft high. It has a difficult approach above the fall, the river is fairly shallow. Put in on river right. There is a large eddy in rocky area 50 ft off bank. Leave the eddy and paddle over the rooster tail. This fall has only been run at medium flows. The line pictured is the easiest but there is one other good line and several others might go. There are a couple of horseshoe shaped areas where one does not want to be. It is easy to scout.

Rapids below falls are large and Class III. The flows depend on the dam releases, well above the falls. Spring (lare April) is your best bet. The release depend on winter snow-pack and irrigation demands.

How to get there

Hagerman, ID is off Interstate 84 about 30 miles west of Twin Falls. Take the exit for Hagerman and follow Highway 30 about 5 miles east to Hagerman. Continue through the town on the highway 30 and drive for another 2 more miles past Hagerman. After driving over the reservoir, turn right into Bell Rapids road (clearly marked). Drive 1 mile to the bridge directly above the dam (very obvious). Go to river right of this bridge.

Now paddle or walk alongside the irrigation canal downstream until you are below the dam. Walk over to the river.

The take out is 1 mile further on Bell Rapids Road at a powerplant on the reservoir.
