The Upper Buffalo Fork is a scenic and high quality hike-in packraft run. Paddlers can begin on the Class III North Fork of the Buffalo Fork, on the Class IV South Fork, or just launch near the confluence. Regardless of your starting point, enjoy the swift ride through fairly simple wave trains around canyon bends back to the trailhead.
