    Absolutely breathtaking especially during sunset! This is also in the winter.. during summer it’s even more beautiful!! Definitely recommend to stop by and check it out if you’re ever in the area. So beautiful here!! There’s even some lava rock sediments on a hill. So beautiful.

    If you're lucky you can see BASE jumping! I was passing through town, drove across the bridge and saw a girl jumping off the bridge. So pulled over at one of the several parking lots, and spent the next 45 minutes watching many jumpers. Very awesome bridge!! And so awesome that it's apparently not illegal to jump. Good job to the local government or whoever allows it.

    August of 2020 I went back home to visit family. Growing up in Idaho every time we came to Twin Falls I loved going across the Perrine Memorial Bridge. When I came to visit for a couple weeks I decided to have a "me" day. My mom let me take her car and I drove to Twin Falls to try Chick-fil-a and then stopped at the bridge and took pictures. While enjoying the scenery and also checking out the wall of locks I saw a guy getting ready to parachute off the bridge. I've always seen videos but never experienced it first hand. I uploaded the video separately but with this review I uploaded some of the pictures I took. Watching the guy parachute was nerve raking but so cool seeing him land safely and then you can hear him cheer. There were people in kayaks cheering him on too. Such a cool moment to experience. This Bridge is defintely special to me and being able to come back after all these years was awesome!! Next time I will need to actually go down into the canyon and hike the rim, but this visit was more nostalgic if anything and just re-experiencing places I frequented with my family growing up. When you pass through stop and enjoy the view, put a lock on the wall, or just take some me time.

    This is a great look out, walk along the bridge, walk underneath it. Great spot for parking on either side of the bridge, especially if you have a caravan of long trailer on the back, plenty of room here.

    Beautiful truss arch 4 lane bridge, 457meter long & 148 meter above snake river. Amazing views of bridge from visitors center which is at south end of bridge. Popular & only man-made allowed structure for base jumping. Lot of base jumpers were getting ready for jumping when we visited. From top of bridge views are stunning of snake river canyon You can go under bridge also on trail.

    This bridge in Twin Falls, Idaho on across Snake River is a marvelous peice of architecture. The visitor center is also very beautiful. It has restrooms and big parking lot. There is hiking trail around the bridge. Also people jump off the balloon from this bridge. We loved the whole scenery. People were walking their dogs/ hiking etc. the gorgeous Snake river flowing underneath looked very pretty.

    Can access the overlook from either direction. Some great views. It was hot out there today 7-23 so I retreated back to the car's AC after a quick video and a few pictures. Definitely worth a stop if close or passing by

    Cool feat of engineering with gorgeous views of the canyon. Definitely worth a five or ten minute stop. Bonus is that the spot where Evel Knievel attempted to fly across the snake river canyon can be viewed a mile or so westward.

    Absolutely must to stop by place. Breathtaking view! Be sure to check the visitor center and put a pin on the map.

    So much fun! I enjoyed this, but make sure you find the right place to park! There's a shopping center, access the bridge from that parking lot. This gives you access to a cool statue and all the overlooks into the canyon and the best view of the bridge ... o, and access to paver pathways under the highway etc. if you wanted to walk. Overall, a quick stop, maybe 30 mins to appreciate it [w/o walking too far/much], and photograph. I thought it was worth it.

    Great views. Some of the safety rails have come unwelded and need to be repaired. The visitor center host was welcoming. We observed some B.A.S.E. jumpers, that was exciting.

    It's definitely worth the stop to check out and walk around. If you're lucky, you may catch a base jumper jumping from this 498 foot bridge down to the river side below. This is 1 of 2 bridges in the world that doesn't require a permit to base jump, and the only one in the U.S.

    I have lived in the twin falls area for about 2 1/2 years now and the bridge is a place I always bring visiting friends and family and there is often a good chance that they will get to see Base Jumpers going off the bridge! It's a must see if you're in the area!

    What a place. I'm scared of heights and made it a mission to walk across this bridge and look over the railing. Mission accomplished, I felt a bit silly about my fears when the base jumpers just hopped the railing and let go. It was a sight to see for sure.

  • 5/5 Natalie B. 1 year ago on Google
    I think this is a pretty cool sight worth stopping at on your road trip. The sight is very beautiful! Also, I love the sound of the cars going over the bridge! So cool!

    In the Top 5 fav bridges for sure. Sit and watch the shadow fall on the river. Or walk along the paved path/ Perfect with views for biking/scooters or jogging. 👌 No shade on trail.

  • 5/5 Brent F. 1 year ago on Google
    This bridge is so cool. It has spots to walk under the bridge and watch the base jumpers. You get the most amazing view and will not ever forget this spot.

  • 4/5 Renata H. 1 year ago on Google
    Beautiful spot. There is a little parking for the scenic lookout on both sides of the highway. It is a couple of meters after/before the bridge. The sad thing is: I caught on the camera some kids, under the supervision of their parents, grafting the handrails. That is not right.

    Excellent bird of the snake river if you’re brave enough to walk across. You can pull off and park on either side just on the way out of or into town on highway 93. Once you get to the bridge on foot choose which side to walk on by using the stairs and connecting path underneath. There’s one on either side so if you go across you can come back on a different side and still get back to your car. My advice is the railing will turn your hand black with dirt so be prepared with wipes and please pack them back out with you. Oh! And you might see some BASE jumping too

    Captain Ahab of Ahab's Adventures enjoying the view of modern engineering that is Perrine Memorial Bridge. We had planned to hike from here to the Evel Knievel jump site, but right before got a local tip to access it via a secret location. Though our stay was short at the viewing point, you could see why this site is so popular literally being near just about any amenity you could think of while in Twin Falls.

    If you’re lucky, you can watch people doing a BASE jump on the Petrine Memorial Bridge. A fun fact about this bridge is it's the only bridge people can legally jump and do paragliding (I heard about this fun fact from a local person)!

    I have been traveling across this snake river gorge on this bridge for years over 30 years to be exact and this is the first time I have actually taken the time to stop and look around and I personally think it is awesome I’ve been intrigued with this area ever since Evel Knievel jump the snake river canyon with his motorcycle years ago!

  • 5/5 Amy J. 2 years ago on Google
    This place is amazing! If you come on a day with calm or no wind, you can watch the base jumpers. There is a nice hike down to go below the bridge or you can also rent kayaks from AWOL to go down the river. Beautiful scenery.

    This bridge is absolutely free of charge and has enough entertainment for your entire family for hours. No wonder it's a huge tourist attraction. Thanks to the city of Twin and the entities that support all these facilities. You can watch base jumpers (that sometimes end up in the river). You can walk or jog the long trails and across the bridge. You can go under on both sides, so every inch of the area is pedestrian-friendly. You can read history and see the various monuments. There are free, clean restrooms nearby. Easy, free parking. Shade, or a breeze. Views for (literally) miles.

    A cool landmark and feature over the canyon. You can get great views from Centennial Park and there is a pull out so you can walk under the bridge on the north side. If you are lucky, you can see base jumpers jumping off the bridge. Kind of a "oh my" moment when you see them leap off the bridge.
