Mesa Falls Scenic Byway
The Mesa Falls Scenic Byway is a beautiful route located in eastern Idaho, specifically in Fremont County. It offers stunning views of two magnificent waterfalls, Upper Mesa Falls and Lower Mesa Falls, as well as the surrounding natural landscapes.
How long of a drive is it?
Approximately 28 miles. The drive starts in Ashton, Idaho, and ends in the Island Park area.
And the views are absolutely incredible. I've personally driven the Mesa Falls Scenic Byway many times and can vouch for its scenic beauty, especially during the Summer and Fall. You will see amazing views of the Snake River, forests, meadows, and winding rivers.
