The Hagerman Valley was formed 15,000 years ago by the Bonneville flood which gouged out canyons, moved house-sized boulders and left enormous sand bars. The Valley's landscape is dotted with uncounted numbers of "rock melons" giving silent testimony to the colossal flood. The Valley is a land of water, with hot and cold springs, volcanic lava flows, deep box canyons, fossil beds, vast rock formations and mine diggings. It is the canyon of the mighty Pohogawa, River of the Sage Plain, as the Indians called the Snake River, with its rapids, whirlpools, waterfalls and associated wildlife. It is a land of melon farming, waterfowl, deer and trout. It is a land of hot summers and mild winters; a land that has served the Indian, the emigrant, the settler, the farmer and rancher for hundreds of years.
It is a land of hot summers and mild winters. For fisherman, water skiers, boaters, bird watchers, and white water enthusiasts, the Snake River is one of the premier rivers of the West. The Visitor Center provides information on fossil exhibits, educational films, access to hiking, and tours to fit the level of your interests. 625-acre Malad Gorge State Park provides a spectacular 3.5-mile scenic loop, modern accessible restrooms, picnic shelters, hiking trails, interpretive kiosk, and breath-taking viewpoints of the magnificent Malad Gorge.
