River Description

Wind River Indian Reservation

So this is quite possibly THE most demanding run in Wyoming.  It starts out with a 20 mile hike to the river.  Then you have several days of whitewater.  Expect to walk a fair number of rapids.  Actually if you are reading this and your not a class V creeker with the skills to do a multiday wilderness run with a 20 mile hike in and lots of big rapids and a few unrunnable things go somewhere else.

Check out for a trip report.

This stretch of amazing whitewater was run by a group of Jackson Paddlers in 2002. This run lies completely in Native Reservation making it illegal. To protect this area for the future PLEASE!! find out all the info that you need to know before you even wear your booties in the reservation!! Thank You.

AW Seeks Interim Protection for Wyoming Creeks

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.

Wind River Range Creeks Need Your Support (WY)

Kevin Colburn

The Shoshone National Forest is in the process of revising their Forest Plan.  The Forest covers much of the rugged Wind River Range and portions of the Clarks Fork of the Yellowstone watershed.  As part of that process USFS staff are selecting which rivers they deem to be eligible for Wild and Scenic River designation. AW is asking for your help and involvement over the next week to provide feedback on this evaluation.
