Hagerman's Hidden Crown Jewel
Found in beautiful Hagerman less than two hours from Boise, Idaho State Parks & Recreation writes "Thousand Springs State Park is a testament to why this rugged area of southern Idaho is called the Magic Valley." In a state with 27 national parks, that says a lot!
A Spectacular 6-in-1-Stop Shop
Hagerman's hidden crown jewel is a multifaceted experience divided into six unique features: the Oregon Trail; Billingsley Creek; Ritter Island; Box Canyon; Niagara Springs; and Malad Gorge. If the idea of visiting six separate attractions sounds exhausting, you'll be glad to know they're just a short distance away from one another!
One reviewer on TripAdvisor had this to say of his experience exploring the series:
We saw Niagara Springs, Box Canyon, Ritter Island, Devils, Washbowl/Malad Gorge Park as a single trip. These are fairly close together and take just a few hours after visiting Shoshone Falls. They are each remarkable in their own way.
