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).

Lat/Longitude data are very approximate.

John Gangemi

<?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />Idaho is proposing a $13 registration fee for non-motorized boats greater than 7 feet in length.  Under this registration fee proposal all kayaks and rafts on Idaho waters would be required to have a registration sticker fixed to the bow of each boat greater than 7 feet in length.  Stickers would not be transferable between boats.  Out of state boaters would be required to comply as well.
