Bruneau River - Bruneau (Indian Hot Springs to Bruneau)

Idaho-US  

Description

This 40 mile stretch of river cuts through the Bruneau Canyon in southwestern Idaho.  The logistics of getting on the river can be harder than actually running it. Lots of people combine this with Jarbidge river for a 4-5 day float.  The short flow season makes catching this run difficult.

As with the Jarbidge River be aware of log jams and poison ivy.  There are sections where the poison ivy lines the banks and is thick.
