The South Fork of the Two Medicine River offers paddlers an extremely scenic trip through the Rocky Mountain Front. At flows around 1300 the river is Class III or III+, with the highlights being a handful of bedrock ledge drops. Higher flows would bump the difficulty up to at least Class IV, with the ledge holes packing some serious power.
