The falls lie towards the end of the road heading up the Selway River from HWY 12. This is a truly gorgeous river canyon, marked by clear water, steep slopes, a recovering forest (from fire a few years ago), and a big waterfall. We watched...More

At Selway Falls, you'll find yourself in the heart of gorgeous wild country along one of our nation's first eight designated Wild & Scenic rivers. At the falls I find a sense of deep peace and usually take time to hike further uprive on a...More

We had a fun visit to this area. We fished and camped out. Beware of the forest service campgrounds!!! There have been budget cuts and they have sacrificed on sanitation. The bathrooms beyond where the pavement ended were terrible. However, the remote nature of the...More

Beautiful river and the falls are a perfect place to watch salmon jump up the river. Drive to the end of the Selway River road (gravel), park and hike further upriver. Beaches and coves are good picnic spots.

Selway Falls is a must see. It is worth the drive and the wonderful scenery. Best time to see it is in the spring at high water. We drive up to once a year because it is so wonderful

The falls are a must see when you are in the area. They were spectacular at low water and we look forward to a return trip when the water it high.

The "falls" are not a huge deal but the scenery on the drive up were gorgeous. Watching the kayakers and rafters go down the river was fun, too.

This is one of those places that just can't be appreciated in photos, you need to see it. It isn't one big classic waterfall, but is a massive run of huge, powerful whitewater. The road is not paved all the way, but your average rental...More

especially in the late spring. Not as spectacular as the magnificent Palouse River Falls but still an experience I greatly appreciated having.

Selway Falls is not on the Snake River. It's on the Wild & Scenic Selway River in north central Idaho. Your inquiry refers to an area in south Idaho.
