WATER TRAIL TRIBUTARIES

The Snake River in southern Idaho and eastern Oregon passes through some of the Northwest's most spectacular landscapes, rich in everything from canyon rim hikes to wine and agricultural tours; from Oregon Trail history to vibrant present-day communities.  "Tributaries" are side trips connecting the Water Trail to nearby not-to-be-missed destinations.  They might lead you from the banks of the mighty Snake River to a tasting room in the heart of Idaho's Wine Country, a living-history program at the National Historic Oregon Trail Interpretive Center, or an up close and personal raptor encounter at the World Center for Birds of Prey.
