It is really hard to choose one thing in Idaho that is the best or most beautiful, but Mesa Falls may just be close to the top of the list. Idaho is full of beauty. From the South Hills in autumn, the Shoshone Falls, the many wooded areas for hiking and camping, snow covered trails in winter, and so much more. Everywhere you look there is some natural beauty. Sometimes you have to travel for the really good views though. Mesa Falls is just under 4 hours from Twin Falls and it's near Yellowstone so you could make a day trip or a weekend vacation out of a visit there.

Don't get me wrong. When the Shoshone Falls are at full flow they are beyond comparison. When they are just a trickle it opens them up for a little judgement and competition from other great waterfalls.
