This spectacular bridge spans the majestic Snake River Canyon on the northern edge of Twin Falls. It is 1,500 feet long and 486 feet above the Snake River. The four-lane bridge has pedestrian walkways with views of the river, sheer cliffs, the Blue Lakes, waterfalls, a park and two golf courses. A road descends to these areas. The Twin Falls Visitor Center is next to the bridge.
BASE jumpers enjoy the Perrine Bridge as their launching pad for parachuting from the bridge to the canyon floor below. BASE jumping is a sport involving the use of a parachute to jump from fixed objects. "BASE" is an acronym that stands for the four categories of fixed objects from which one can jump: Building, Antenna, Span, Earth.
A parking area adjacent to a Visitor Center allows for close inspection of Idaho's most striking bridge. It also provides easy access to the developed canyon rim trail system.
