WATER TRAILS OF IDAHO & OREGON

Idaho and Oregon are crisscrossed with beautiful waterways to explore, from roaring whitewater to Wild & Scenic; mountain headwaters to majestic gorges. Some are backcountry "hidden gems" while others are iconic elements of our great Pacific Northwest landscapes. Most of these rivers and streams are not part of a designated water trail, although cumulatively they contain thousands and thousands of navigable river miles. All of them are tributaries of the epic narrative of this place.

The resources below will help you discover blueways in Idaho and Oregon which are part of a water trail or water trail system.
