Twin Falls is a waterfall on the Snake River in the Snake River Canyon in southern Idaho, United States. The falls are located on the border of Jerome and Twin Falls counties, a few miles east of its namesake city, Twin Falls. They are upstream of Pillar Falls and Shoshone Falls and just downstream from Milner Dam.
Water flow over Twin Falls is controlled by the Twin Falls Dam, which is used for irrigation and hydroelectric power generation. The falls were so named because there was originally two parallel falls on the river. However, the Twin Falls Dam alter the falls and permanently diverted the flow of the Snake River from the southern falls, leaving a single waterfall.
