Devil's Corral

Thursday, August 19, 2021

Other Names

Perrine Bridge, Shoshone Falls Road, Snake River Canyon, Three Springs, Devils Corral, North Rim Canyon Park, Snake River Rim Recreation Area

Last Known StatusOpen

Overlooking the rugged Snake River, this area offers several hundred acres of wide 4x4 dirt roads, a few makeshift motocross tracks and a couple play areas. Some of the trails get really close to the edge of the canyon, and while this provides some fantastic views, just use caution (it's a long drop down!).

The area is open year-round but camping is not permitted. Vegetation is limited to the occasional scrub brush, so bring shade during the summer months. Overall this is a good spot to get a quick ride in, but if you're looking for more challenging terrain with plenty of camping check out nearby South Hills.

The only portion that is closed to offroad use is the Devils Corral Canyon, which is located on the eastern section of the area, and is only accessible via hiking since it has been recently blocked off by the BLM to motorized use to help preserve ancient Indian artifacts.

There is no shortage of fantastic views of the Snake River surrounded by steep and rugged canyons. Photo Submitted 4/30/2015 (Thanks!)

This area is popular with the ATV and UTV crowd. The trails are mostly wide and hard packed, which makes it a good choice for locals looking for an easy day ride.

There is a pedestrian path that crosses the Perrine Bridge where you can get some excellent views of the Snake River and waterfalls.

From a distance you can see the tall hill where Evel Knievel made his infamous attempt in 1974 to jump the Snake River. Shoshone Falls Park is located across the canyon which has a paved bicycle trail that will take you to the hill.

This is the main entrance just north of the Perrine Bridge off Hwy 93. The main staging area is to the right but there is additional parking further up this road.

The trails are mostly flat with the occasional small hill, which makes this a good spot for ATVs and UTVs. There isn't much much single track or challenging terrain to be found here.
