Owyhee River - Middle (Three Forks to Rome)

Oregon-US  

Description

The Middle Owyhee is an excellent scenic and remote river and canyon.  If you can hit this river when the water is flowing you will most likely have 2 to 4 days of river time all to yourself.  

The Middle has plenty of challenging rapids, flat water, great camping and scenery to make this stretch of river a "must do".  See the rapids section below for more info on the degree of whitewater throughout this canyon.
