This section is NOT runable in a raft!!! Very skilled class V for advanced kayakers only. There is a huge hike out, or portage. Says Teton Boater

You will die if you run this river!! Says Deadly

The starting point is not too far from Rexburg, as you can see on the road map further down. The natural beauty of Teton/ Madison/ Fremont County and the sparkling of the sunlight on the water are reasons enough to come here and paddle.
    Whitewater rafting and kayaking spots in Idaho tend to be more challenging than the national average, so if you're not from around here don't forget that many of the sections here are not safe for beginners. You can pitch
a tent or park your RV at a nearby campground. The nearby hotels are a bit away from the river, but do book a room before you come because it is a very popular destination. A good workout and just being out on the river for a while will make you glad you came. This section of Teton River in Idaho is 5 miles long and has been rated as a class IV-V section by American Whitewater. You might be into whitewater rafting or kayaking or both, doesn't  
matter, this area has a large number of paddling places. There are so many sections to paddle in this river system, the Highway 33 Bridge to Spring Hollow section is just one of many.
