The Malad River Canyon is 250 feet deep and 2.5 miles long. At the Malad Gorge State Park, located right off Interstate 84
east of Bliss
, you can view the canyon and walk along the rim. I-84 crosses Malad Gorge but the angle of view hides the deep gorge where the river cascades into Devil's Washtable. From the park's footbridge, photographers delight in watching the interplay of light and shadow that constantly change the character of the craggy cliffs.
Malad Gorge is located on what was the north alternate route of the Oregon Trail. Views of the gorge are best from the slender but sturdy bridge that arcs across the canyon. You can take a short hike to discover nearby fingers of the gorge.
Many of Idaho's most beautiful and scenic spots are preserved in the Idaho State Parks system.
