Idaho whitewater, Little Salmon River

Idaho Adams county, One mile down from Smokey Boulder Road to Hazard Creek section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.

 

CLASS III-V     6 miles
  This section of Little Salmon River is 6 miles long and is a class III-V section of whitewater according to American Whitewater. The natural beauty of Idaho and the beautiful way the water current moves down the stream are reasons enough to come here and paddle. If you've been out of state whitewater rafting and kayaking you might find the rivers here more demanding, so keep in mind that lots of rivers here are not for beginners. A bit
    of exercise and a chance to spend some time outdoors are great reasons to come. The wild scenery of the Salmon River Mountains is great. No matter if you're whitewater rafting or kayaking around here you'll find a large
number of good places. If you're a camper you can camp at one of the great campgrounds nearby. You might have to settle for a hotel a bit away from the river if you want to stay the night, and if you make reservations in advance you're all set. This river system has a few good paddling sections and the One mile down from Smokey Boulder Road to Hazard Creek section is one of them. The starting location is a reasonable drive from Lewiston,  
as you can see on the road map further down. This section is long enough to enjoy a good non stop paddle, it's good length for a morning trip.
