Idaho-Oregon Snake River Water Trail visitors have the opportunity to explore over 200 miles of remarkable river, canyons, deserts, historic sites, and local communities representative of the rich natural and cultural heritage of our region.  The majority of the Water Trail shoreline is under public ownership--however, there are also privately-owned stretches of shoreline along the Water Trail.  A primary goal of the Idaho-Oregon Snake River Water Trail is to promote respect for private property along the Snake River.

We strongly encourage all visitors to review maps and research property boundaries while planning your Water Trail trip.

The Idaho Oregon Snake River Water Trail Coalition is a 206 mile water trail along the Snake River in Southwest Idaho and Eastern Oregon for people to explore, respect and enjoy. A water trail is a water route that provides recreational and educational opportunities for motorized and non-motorized boaters and commercial opportunities for river communities. This trail begins at Three Island Crossing State Park, Idaho and ends at Farewell Bend State Park, Oregon.

Our mission:  The Idaho-Oregon Snake River Water Trail promotes river access and recreational opportunities that benefit communities, tourism and preservation of natural and cultural resources through a network of partnerships.
