Note that this stretch 'described' is above the trailheads (on either side of river) and will require packing your boats to. Would love to know more about the narrow gorge section low on this stretch. We tried to scout from the rim and saw at least one solid class IV wave at a narrow section of the river but we could not see much above here. We ended up dropping in below the narrows by hiking down to a meadow visible from the trail. A little III and then II to the Hunter Bridge described here: http://wyomingnaturalist.com/html/river/river_sf_shoshone.html

AW Seeks Interim Protection for Wyoming Creeks

11/19/2010
Kevin Colburn

Today American Whitewater filed comments offering additional support for several rivers that the Shoshone National Forest found eligible for Wild and Scenic designation, and recommending that several additional streams be found eligible.  Eligible rivers are afforded interim protection from dams and certain other impacts. These comments were generated with the help of the regional paddling community.
