Full description

Take a comfortable air-conditioned ride and explore the Box Canyon Springs Preserve, Malad Gorge State Park, the Hagerman National Fish Hatchery, and Balanced Rock.

Starting at the Nature Preserve, take a short walk to the overlook and see natural springs flowing through this spectacular canyon which is home to lush vegetation and a variety of desert animals. Then it's on to Malad Gorge State Park where a 60 ft (18 meters) retreating cataract known as Devil's Washbowl once plunged over the edge of this 250 ft (76 meters) deep gorge into the Snake River. At the Hagerman Hatchery, you can marvel at the steelhead smolts and the massive white sturgeons. Drive the Thousand Springs Scenic byway on your way to one of the most breathtaking panoramic views Magic Valley has to offer overlooking three miles of the Oregon Trail. Finally, sit back, relax and enjoy the beautiful countryside of Castleford, Idaho, on your way to the gravity-defying Balanced Rock, a wind-carved natural wonder standing 48 ft (14.5 meters) tall.
