These two falls on the Snake River are roughly five miles apart. Upper Salmon Falls, in between Gooding and Twin Falls counties, is the more impressive of the two; from there, the Snake flows into the Upper Salmon Falls Reservoir; the historic Owsley Bridge crosses nearby.

Lower Salmon Falls, located downstream, has been halfway obscured by the Lower Salmon Falls Dam. Lower Salmon Falls Park north of Hagerman is managed by Idaho Power and is full of plenty of recreational opportunities, including canoeing, kayaking, boating, and hiking.
