Popular Twin Falls Boating & Kayaking Spot Has Real Life Batcave
One of the best things about living in southern Idaho is kayaking. There are numerous places to spend a day out on the water that offer stunning surroundings, and one Twin Falls landmark on Idaho Power grounds reminds me of the Batman movies every time I float past it.
Some of my favorite spots to kayak in southern Idaho include Balanced Rock Park, Thousand Springs State Park, Bruneau Dunes State Park, and Twin Falls Park. Each location provides its own unique adventure on the water. Thousand Springs has waterfalls, Balanced Rock Park has incredible rock formations, Bruneau Dunes is surrounded by massive mountains of sand, and Twin Falls Park has what I like to call the Batcave.
I remember the first time I floated past it years ago. I couldn't take my eyes off of it. I'm intrigued by what might lie in the cave, which sits roughly 150 to 200 feet above the water, carved into the side of a rock cliff face.
The outline of the cave even looks like a bat. I've envisioned the Batplane shooting out of the cave's opening and soaring into the sky above Twin Falls.
Due to its location, the cave would be impossible to actually explore unless you were a very experienced climber, or had the equipment to rappel down to the entrance. Anyone who attempts to reach it is definitely risking their life, which just adds to its allure.
