We support projects that allow people to engage directly with the Snake River corridor, whether through education, recreation, or a combination of the two!  Goals for our projects include:

  • To promote respect for private property along the Water Trail to minimize disruption and disturbance;

  • To promote the Water Trail as a valuable, sensitive resource for recreation, water safety, education, and stewardship;

  • To identify access and opportunities for boaters in the form of, but not limited to:  portages, launches, campsites and available services;

  • To develop partnerships among government agencies, businesses, nonprofit organizations, and the public;

  • To develop the Water Trail as an economic asset to our local communities and partner organizations;

  • To promote the Water Trail as a way to pursue an active outdoor lifestyle.

2 states. 206 miles. 1 river.

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.
