River Description

The North Fork Boise is a gem of a run. The heart of the canyon is road less, and the shuttle can
be tricky. The character of the run is mostly II-III, but there is a great inner section of ~1.5
miles filled with excellent long III-IV boulder gardens. This is a very scenic and pristine canyon,
and would be a great candidate for a short overnighter.

See Idaho: the Whitewater State by G. Amaral (Watershed Books, 1990).
