River Mountains scenery is wonderful. This is a very short stretch so it's not like you're gonna spend hours on the river in one stretch.

There are some good sections to paddle in this river system, the Hard Creek to Little Salmon confluence section is one of them. There arenít any hotels right nearby but if you're willing  
to drive a short distance then no problem but you'd better reserve in advance because these hotels fill up quick.

Briefly about the general area:
Lots of people from Pollock come to Hazard Creek, and you'll never forgive yourself if you donít go skiing at Brundage Mountain since you're here.

Throughout May this area sees the most rain while July is frequently the driest month. All through the summertime months highs here at Hazard Creek get into the 90's.
