This 15-mile long river flows through a desert canyon of sagebrush and juniper habitat where visitors can enjoy trout fishing as well as viewing birds of prey. Nesting golden eagles, prairie falcons, red-tailed hawks and great horned owls call this area home. Visitors come for boating, camping, fishing and picnicking.
A put-in for non-motorized boats, rafts and kayaks is located at Trail Creek. The take-out is located at the Sagehen Campground.
Location: About 35-50 miles (depending on which campsite) northwest of Soda Springs.
