Swan Falls Loop

Swan Falls Loop, an easy 56-mile paved loop tour, winds from the town of Kuna across the desert and down into the Snake River Canyon. You can see an assortment of raptors, historic structures and American Indian rock art along the drive. Consider stopping at Initial Point for a short hike to the top of a lava butte. Other places for outstanding scenic views are Three-Pole Pullout, the top of Swan Falls Grade and Swan Falls Dam—the first hydroelectric dam on the Snake River. Loop Tour maps are available online at
