Shoshone Falls is usually just a trickle at this time of year, but because of recent flooding and mountain snow melt, the falls is more amazing than usual. Unfortunately up until now part of the park was closed because of hazardous driving conditions to get close to the falls, but good news if you're headed that way.....

The City of Twin Falls has issued a release stating that full access to Shoshone Falls Park has reopened.

The entry gate on Shoshone Falls Drive, which provides access to Shoshone Falls and Dierkes Lake parks in now open.

Drivers are asked to reduce their speed and use caution on the roadway, as city street crews are applying a de-icing agent to help deal with further accumulation.

The city closed the entry gate on Shoshone Falls Drive earlier this month due to hazardous road conditions for both drivers and pedestrians.

The public is reminded to not walk or drive beyond the entry gate when it is closed. The city closes the entry gate when weather or other conditions pose a risk to visitors’ safety. (tfid.org)

Every so often, the Niagara Falls of the west, as Shoshone Falls is known puts on an amazing spring show when spring runoff hits and even though it was more spectacular last week, it's still pretty cool, especially not that you can get up close once again...If you want to see it, this weekend is still a good time because of higher than normal snow melt. But if you can't see it now, it will be roaring again later this spring about Man and first part of June
