Caldron Linn, or Cauldron Linn, also known as Star Falls, is a waterfall on the Snake River in southern Idaho. Caldron Linn was a key site of the Overland Party of the Pacific Fur Company, an expedition to the Pacific Ocean led by Wilson Price Hunt. The expedition attempted to canoe down the Snake River in 1811 and had already lost one of their party to the river when they encountered the waterfall. The churning waters of the falls inspired the expedition to abandon the river and continue on land to the Pacific. East of present-day Murtaugh, the waterfall was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1972 for its role in the expedition.

As we were walking towards this falls and small canyon, I was thinking this is lame. But when we got there, (short 1/4 mile walk) it was actually pretty cool. We parked at the top and walked down because we weren’t sure of the road but 4 Wheel drives and SUVs and small campers like our class B or a small class C, would have no problem getting down there on a good dry day. We also found you can camp down near the water for free for up to 14 days....had we a flyrod we might’ve stayed. Worth the trip if you want to stretch your legs but not the most exciting falls.

Best time to go is in the Spring but even in the Summer it is amazing to see the power of nature. Fun for all ages. Just keep a hand on little ones because there is no rail.
