There’s a recent article from Prevention that shares the most underrated attractions in each state. They say...
“Classic tourist attractions may have their charms, but they come with a huge drawback: sooo many crowds. From fascinating museums to gorgeous scenery, these destinations are just as interesting, but off the beaten path—even for locals.”
So, what attraction is “the most underrated” in Idaho?
Bruneau Canyon Overlook
Prevention says, “Hit the road to the Bruneau Canyon Overlook, which shows dazzling vistas of a remote 800-foot-deep river canyon that goes for about 60 miles. It's especially more impressive for its desert surroundings.”
According to Bureau of Land Management, Bruneau Canyon Overlook is “the Grand Canyon of Southwest Idaho!” They say...
“This canyon was shaped by an astounding combination of volcanism, glacial melt, and regional drainage patterns. The Bruneau Overlook is the only readily accessible spot to view this spectacular canyon carved through basalt and rhyolite by the Bruneau River. The opposite rim is 1,300 feet away and the distance from rim to riverbed is 800 feet. From this spot near the northern end of the 60-mile canyon, view the wild and scenic Bruneau River tumbling out of the Bruneau-Jarbidge Rivers Wilderness.”
