Information

Not far off Highway 47 beyond Ashton in the Targhee National Forest, on the Mesa Falls Scenic Byway, you can hear the thunder of both Upper and Lower Mesa Falls. Two spectacular waterfalls on the Henrys Fork of the Snake River. Paved parking and paths, accessible restrooms, boardwalks and viewing platforms at Upper Mesa Falls enhance the site for the visitor. Viewing of Lower Mesa Falls is from Grandview Campground and Overlook. In winter the road is closed by snow and groomed for snowmobiling and Nordic skiing. Mesa Falls day pass can also be used at Harriman State Park and Henry's Lake State Park on the day of purchase.
