This gentle walk along the Henry's Fork of the Snake River offers chances to view wildlife and beautiful cliffs. The trailhead is next to the hydroelectric dam at the Buffalo River confluence. The trail continues on down the east side of the Henry's Fork. Basalt cliffs drop off between the trail and the river. You can see beautiful views of the river and cliffs on the other side. Watch for ospreys, as their nests are abundant.
