Evel Knievel's Snake River Jump Monument

You can hike out to the actual jump site and see the dirt ramp from the monument or the falls.

Bridge, gorge, river.

Evel Knievel's Snake River Jump Monument

The prettiest view is right on the main drag. Well worth taking the time to take in the park and the Falls. Gorgeous.

Bridge.

Evel Knievel's Snake River Jump Monument

Truck parking. Only bridge in America that you can parachute from without getting a permit. Just walk up and jump. Watched over 20 jumps today. Nice walking and bike path, too.

Evel Knievel's Snake River Jump Monument

One view of the Snake River jump ramp can be accessed from the Canyon Trails hike inside Shoshone Falls park. $3 vehicle fee (Aug 2012). The park is worth the detour itself; the falls are spectacular.
