The Malad River is a tributary of the Snake River, in Idahomarker in the United Statesmarker. It is formed by the confluence of the Big Wood River and the Little Wood River near Goodingmarker. From there the river flows south and west for 11.5 miles (17.7 km) to join the Snake River near Hagermanmarker.

The river flows through Malad Gorge State Park, where it tumbles down a stairstep waterfall. The Malad Gorge is 250 feet (76 m) deep and 2.5 miles (4 km) long.

The river's flow is affected by numerous reservoirs and irrigation works on its tributaries. The Malad River itself is largely diverted into a power flume that enters the Snake below the mouth of the Malad, via a powerhouse. Below the diversion the Malad River is replenished by numerous springs, yet the average flow above the diversion is higher than at the river's mouth.

The Malad River is part of the Columbia River basin, being a tributary of the Snake River, which is a tributary to the Columbia River.
