Flathead, Middle Fork - Essex to Moccasin Creek

Montana-US  

Description

Another good scenic family float section of the middle fork.  This can be combined with parts of the upper or the John Stevens Canyon portion downstream.

If you are wanting to take out at Moccasin Creek you will need to navigate through many river braided channels to find the ramp.  This can be tough at certain water levels or if you are unfamiliar with the river.  If you miss the take out your next option would be to continue through John Steven's Canyon and take out in West Glacier, MT
