The Snake River canyon hosts some of the best scenery in Idaho. Looking at the canyon wall you can see millions of years of volcanic basalt and ash layers. Many species of birds of prey have made their home along the shear canyon walls. Then to top it off the sunsets along the Snake River canyon are some of the best you can see in the state.
Along this short 10 mile stretch of river there is an abundance of historical land marks. We launch from Celebration Park, Idaho's only archeological park. Near Celebration Park you can find several petroglyphs and Guffey Bridge. Then up river from Celebration Park you can see giant boulder fields left from the Bonneville Flood, rock houses from the gold rush, then finally Swan Falls dam.
Throughout this section of river there are 2 main rapids. One being a technical class 3 and the other being a rowdy class 2. The rest of the river is more technical than one may think. Carving through the Snake River Canyon there are many stand alone boulders along the river. Without proper knowledge of the river it can be a graveyard for boats.
