You may have heard about this one, but decades ago in 1974, stuntman Evel Knievel attempted to jump the Snake River Canyon in a steam powered rocket. Spoiler alert: he failed. Of course everybody already knows that story though - it's a part of who we are in Twin Falls. A slice of our history.

So, here's the real question - have you ever climbed to the top of the jump site on the Twin Falls side of the canyon? Mike Nielsen did and it's a pretty cool view. Plus from up there you can look across the canyon for a new view.

The canyon view trail is fully connected now so you can start over by the LDS Temple at the Eastland/Pole Line curve and walk to the jump site and even climb it if you want. There is also a cool monument with information about the jump event.
