Hero: Bruneau Canyon Overlook
small-sr Icon

The Bruneau Overlook offers a convenient vantage point above Bruneau Canyon, which the Bruneau River sculpted through basalt and rhyolite formations. Visitors witness the untamed beauty of the wild and scenic Bruneau River as it flows out of the Bruneau-Jarbidge Rivers Wilderness area. At the end of the road, well-frequented hiking trails run along the canyon's rim, attracting hikers and birdwatchers alike. Additionally, a pit toilet is available at this location. There are no campsites along the trail.

Be mindful of cattle that may be present along the road.
