Cassia Mountain Range, locally known as the South Hills are beautiful beyond words. Located south of the Magic Valley by just a quick drive, it is truly incredible how much the landscapes shift. The elevation changes from Twin Falls at 3,700 to the top of the hills at 8,400. Hikes in the South Hills are wonderful to escape the valley and explore the vibrant forest

Southern Idaho is the perfect stop along the way to Yellowstone National Park! Did you know Twin Falls, located centrally in south Idaho, was once on top of the hot spot that makes Yellowstone active? As the world moved, so did we, but there are plenty of sights to see from the previous volcanic action all around the Magic Valley to get you ready for Yellowstone. Enjoy viewing gorgeous waterfalls in the Snake River Canyon, see caves and slot canyons, and enjoy tasty cuisine along the way!
