Evel Knievel Jump Site
See some real American history in Idaho. The Evel Knievel Jump Site, located west of Twin Falls, is the spot where motorcycle daredevil and American patriot Evil Knievel attempted to jump across the Snake River Canyon. On September 8, 1974, Knievel failed to jump across the 500-foot-deep canyon because of a malfunction with his parachute, but only suffered a broken nose.
Visitors to the jump site today, can still see the earthen ramp on the Snake River Canyon rim, where he attempted the jump. Although Knievel died from an extended illness in 2007, his legacy lives on in the Twin Falls area. Visit the Buzz Langdon Visitor Center to learn more about this incredible dare-devil and view the jump site, at the top of the Centennial Trail. Enjoy your stay in this beautiful area of Idaho.
