Things To Do



At this site near the Oregon Trail, the Snake River is forced through a passage less than 40 feet wide. The Wilson Price Hunt party of 1811 capsized several times here and had to make the rest of their journey on foot. Undisturbed by later farming in the area, it survives as an exceptional natural spectacle.

Outdoor recreation opportunities on public lands in Idaho can mean relaxed activities such as lake fishing or more vigorous activities, like backpacking through remote and primitive canyons and mountains.

North Idaho is laced with lapis-blue swift-flowing rivers and cascading waterfalls and the greatest concentration of lakes in the Northwest. Southwest Idaho is a dramatic montage of desert, rivers and mountains that has lured visitors for centuries. Serene mountain lakes brim with trout, world-class whitewater waits to be kayaked and awe-inspiring canyons are home to birds of prey. And last, but certainly not least, Eastern Idaho is where the snow-capped peaks of the Tetons feed thundering waterfalls and free-flowing rivers, where wildflowers, pine and aspen create a kaleidoscope of autumn color and light.
