Lat/longitude coords are approximate, from TopoZone.
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

Cody, Wyoming - This August 19 & 20 the Wild West Paddle Club is hosting the 2017 Wild West River Fest in Cody, Wyoming. In celebration of the beautiful Shoshone River, the Fest has events for everyone - Slalom Race, Class II Sprint, Shoshone Canyon Boater Cross, and many other fun activities for the whole family! Weekend festivities are free to the public, with the exception of race registration fees for competitors. You can find a full schedule here and all competitors need to register online in advance.
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.
Log into the American Whitewater website and you can contribute to river descriptions,
flow and access tips, and maps associated with runs you've done. You can even add new
runs to the inventory!
