Among Nebraska’s most spectacular waterfalls,
Snake River Falls rushes over a 54-foot-wide ledge.
When the Snake is full, it rushes over the edge at a rate
of 230 cubic feet per second and sprays mist across
the canyon. Water tumbles and turns like a mountain
stream as it fl ows another 12 miles to the Niobrara. It
is 23 miles southwest of Valentine on Highway 97. A
restaurant and visitor center is nearby. Snake River Falls
is open year-round, 8-5. Admission is $1 for adults, 75¢
for children under 18.
