Glenns Ferry is a city in Elmore County, Idaho, United States. On the 26th (Sat), have a few drinks at Crossings Winery and then immerse yourself in nature at Three Island Crossing State Park. On the 27th (Sun), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: cruise along Thousand Springs Scenic Highway, then explore the stunning scenery at Hagerman Fossil Beds National Monument, then take an in-depth tour of Hagerman Valley Historical Society Museum, and finally trek along Oregon Trail.

For maps and other tourist information, refer to the Glenns Ferry trip planner.

Seattle to Glenns Ferry is an approximately 5-hour combination of flight and car. You can also drive. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Seattle to Glenns Ferry. Traveling from Seattle in September, you will find days in Glenns Ferry are somewhat warmer (79°F), and nights are a bit cooler (50°F). Finish your sightseeing early on the 27th (Sun) so you can drive to Twin Falls.
