The Wild and Scenic Gros Ventre River below Slide Lake is a classic, convenient, and fairly popular whitewater run for Jackson area residents and visitors alike. Paddling is prohibited by Grand Teton National Park on the lower half of this run, beginning at the Park Boundary. Take out at the Park Boundary to avoid violating this prohibition. Below the Park Boundary rapids continue upstream of Kelly. Below Kelly the river appears to offer a scenic (though still prohibited) float trip to the Snake River.
Lat/Longitude data are very approximate.
