Hikes & Waterfalls

Boundary County Idaho has over eight hundred thousand acres filled with forested mountainous adventure. Check out this short list of hikes for you to explore! We have provided links to more info for each listing. 

Waterfall Hike

Myrtle Falls

Short Hike a little Steep

Plenty of parking and a nice paved trail for the beginning of this .9 mile round trip hike. You will need to be able to ascend the switchbacks in the trail up to the overlook, but generally this is considered a pretty easy hike.

A Cool View

Unlike other hikes, this trail will take you to an overlook that looks over and down at the waterfall. You will not be at the base of the waterfall. With that said, this provides a beautiful back drop for a family picture or selfie.

Snow Creek Falls in Boundary County Idaho

Waterfall Hike

Snow Creek Falls

Fun and Easy

This fun hike is only about 1.4 miles round trip. The trail splits and you can go to the lower falls or the upper falls. The upper falls are pictured here, and a great place to pause and soak your feet!

Cold Mountain River

Like most rivers flowing from the mountains this water is cold! Be cautious in the spring as this river can be really raging and probably not safe to wade or swim in. But for the summer, this is a perfect place to get some relief for the heat. The waterfall is surrounded in trees and the canyon, and provides a nice cool mist for the hikers.

Waterfall Hike

Copper Falls

So Far North!

This Hike is so close to Canada! You literally turn off the highway just before you come to Eastport, ID and the border crossing. The road up to the trail is mostly dirt and a little curvy, but if you like a tall waterfall, this is the place!

Go off Trail to get Close

The trail has a loop, and the lower trail is definitely easier. There is a higher overlook, and at the bottom of the trail you can climb around the river and rocks to get close to the waterfall for some great shots and fun!

Moyie Falls

Drive Up & Walk around

Moyie Falls is one of Idaho’s great scenic attractions. When water isn’t diverted for hydroelectric power by the City of Bonners Ferry, Moyie River absolutely thunders through a small gorge in tiered form.

A Bit Stop and Go

During the summer months, visit on the weekends. On weekdays, the main 60 to 100 foot drop at the upper falls will likely be dry, with only the lower 20-40 foot cascades flowing. There is a local diversion that


Smith Falls

Just Drive Up

A high volume of water plummets 60 feet along Smith Creek. The falls and the viewpoint are situated on private property. Please obey the posted restrictions.

Going Strong in Spring

As this waterfall is on private property, you cannot get very close to it like others on our list. But it is beautiful and many say worth the drive.
