In the foothills and mountains of the south rim of the Snake River Valley, south of Twin Falls, lie the Diamondfield Jack and Howell Canyon Snowplay areas. The Diamondfield Jack area offers more than 200 miles of groomed and marked trails in 200-square miles of Sawtooth National Forest and Bureau of Land Management land. Both areas are easily accessible from Interstate 84 on Hwy. G3. Two 85-car plowed parking lots provide access and the forest service maintains a warming hut and heated rest rooms. The region surrounding Howell Canyon is similar to Diamondfield Jack and offers the same amenities. Contact the Twin Falls Ranger District for more information and maps.
Located in the old Union School at Curry Crossing, the Twin Falls County Historical Museum offers its visitors a unique opportunity to take a step back to the early days of the Magic Valley. You can see the farm machinery that was used to develop the land, and the daily items that made life easier for those who lived here. From steam tractors to lacework, we display a wide variety of artifacts showing how life's daily chores and pastimes were carried out. Butter churns, report cards, vintage clothes, photographs, patent medicines, plows, and postcards; all those little objects that together, show us the way that folks went about the business of making a place to call home.

Come sit, linger with a cofee or lemonade as local artists perform at the Shelter.
