Grande Ronde - Grande Ronde


Grande Ronde river is a good little family river - there are a few small rapids, but the flow (drop) means you have to pay attention to avoid rocks and other issues.   Most comonly floated from Minam to Troy (or mudd creek 7 miles up stream from troy)  38 miles.  makes for a good three or four day float, but can be done in a weekend.  lots of camps in the roadless area.  tends to get busy during holidays.  Can be floated from minam to heller bar for a longer trip (72 miles maybe?)
