Hells Half Acre National Landmark
This interesting interpretive nature trail takes visitors though an incredible 5,200 year-old lava flow with paved walkways and 25 engraved signs on the hike identifying aspects of the lava flow’s unique ecosystem.
The Hells Half acre lava flow, which emerged from a shield volcano, is one of many basalt flows on the Snake River Plain. It is relatively young, and it has only been partially colonized by vegetation. It is also a very large and mostly roadless flow. Nevertheless, it is near the population centers of Idaho Falls and Blackfoot, and Shelley, Idaho (less than ten miles). Interstate highway 15 cuts through a small portion of the flow. At rest stops on the Interstate, there are short paved walks providing an interpreted trail across the very rough surface.
Blackfoot River Canyon
For a great backcountry scenic drive, check out this portion of the Blackfoot River Canyon. It’s a smaller version of the Snake River Birds of Prey Area. Steep canyon cliffs, aspen and cottonwood trees support nesting golden eagles, prairie falcons, red-tailed hawks, great horned owls and other raptor species. Use turnouts along the road for parking and walk approximately 200 yards to the rim for viewing. A few road spurs provide access to the canyon bottom.
