ACRES OF SIGHTS
THAT WILL LEAVE YOU SPEECHLESS
WHY THE MIDDLE FORK
BECAUSE IT'S AMAZING
The Frank Church Wilderness is one of the most spectacular playgrounds on Earth, with the Middle Fork running through the heart of it. Descend 3,000 feet in 100 miles through the second deepest canyon in the U.S. and discover a variety of landscapes that will leave you amazed—starting with a vast woodland and ending in a spacious canyon with steep walls. As you travel on crystal-clear waters, ride through the river’s 100 whitewater rapids that create a non-stop adventure you won’t soon forget.
The whitewater river isn’t the only spectacle you’ll encounter. Witness a bighorn sheep and its baby atop a boulder while you relax in a natural hot spring; observe Native American pictographs from the Shoshone-Bannock Tuka-Deka from thousands of years ago; learn about the different wildflowers and plants that are native to this terrain; and find numerous artifacts, belongings, and even cabins from early settlers and miners.
The Middle Fork is one of the original eight rivers designated in the Wild and Scenic Rivers System. This means we do our best to preserve the natural landscape by practicing the “Leave No Trace” rule. For more information on this policy, click here.
