Jump Creek Falls
Jump Creek Falls Trail is a quarter-mile-long trail leading to the waterfall, and a beautiful pool perfect for wading and swimming.
Located in the Owyhee Mountain Range, the waterfall is sixty feet tall and flows from Sands Basin. The area is surrounded by rocky canyon walls reaching over 600 hundred feet in some places. This hike is a day-use site, so camping is not an option.
Things to Know:
- 1 hour driving time from Boise
- 1/2 mile round trip with no fees.
- Day use only
- Bring drinking water, snacks, or picnic lunch
