Thousand Springs State Park is an expansive park with several units to explore: Malad Gorge, Kelton Trail, Earl M. Hardy Box Canyon Springs Nature Preserve, Billingsley Creek, Ritter Island, Crystal Springs, and Niagara Springs. Enjoy the gorgeous views as thousands of gallons of water flow from below ground, cascading down the volcanic cliff faces. These springs are the terminus of a massive underground aquifer that flows beneath the Snake River Plain from the Pioneer Mountains of central Idaho.
