Hoback River - Hoback Canyon



High flows turn this run into a rompy class III while lower water brings a peaceful scenic float in beautiful Hoback Canyon.  Hazards include boulders, sweepers and logjams.

Right before the take out and confluence with the snake river is a nice wave to play on.  This can be a park and play destination when the water is flowing well.
