The starting point is not too far from Missoula. The nature scenery of Mineral County and the playfulness of the water will make you feel great. The beauty of the Bitterroot Range is a great plus for this river. A bit of exercise and just being
    out on the river for a while are great attractions for lots of people. Whitewater rafting and kayaking spots in this state tend to be more forgiving than the national average, so don't forget that many runs in this state
are very easy. There are campgrounds quite near the river where you can camp. You might have to settle for a hotel a bit away from the river if you want to stay the night, but you'd better reserve in advance because these hotels fill up quick. Whether you're whitewater rafting or kayaking this is an area with plenty of rivers for that.

Briefly about the general area:
Charette Gulch is a wonderful location to explore close by. Going
 
for a hike along the Trout Creek Stock Driveway will let you absorb the natural beauty of this region. Lots of folks from Superior come to Western Waters & Woods; if the weather is good, you can go for a hike along the Cedar Creek Stock Driveway. Lots of fun awaits you along this river. Western Waters & Woods gets very little precipitation. January is the month that gets the most snow, and July meanwhile is the driest month. For the duration of the months of summer here at Western Waters & Woods, high temperatures ordinarily get into the 80's, and the night is rather colder of course, mostly in the 40's.
