The rivers are running high and fast and the water is cold. Be prepared and cautious if venturing out on the rivers!
Beginning in 2013, water will no longer be available at McDowell Bridge Landing, Riverside Landing, and the Marshland District Office on Highway 70. Please plan accordingly and bring an adequate supply of water.

These recommendations provide basic logistical information about each trip, but also additional information about the difficulty of the river as well as ecological and wildlife information.
