Clinton to Turah

 
 

Clinton to Turah is a more advanced journey offering up a few more twists and turns than the rest. It is a 10-mile excursion for adventure seekers. Featuring more rapids than most, this not-too-lazy float may be better suited for the skilled enthusiasts.

Kelly Island to Harper Bridge

 
 

Another great launch site is Kelly Island to Harper Bridge. If you have a boat or a raft, this is one place that has a cement ramp. Plan on making it a day trip and let out on the downstream of Harper's Bridge. A smooth sailing experience either way.

Rest Stop Between Alberton and Cyr to Tarkio

 
 

This is another wild water adventure that will not be for the faint-hearted. Launch from the rest stop between Alberton, MT and Cyr, MT and prepare for a crazy ride. Both places have easy entry and exit points.

Forest Grove to Superior

 
 

You might want to lather yourself in sun tan lotion for this all day float. Cement and sand ramps greet you on either end, with non-technical water to not rock the floats too much.

Superior to St. Regis

 
 

Another all-day adventure awaits with a more leisurely approach. A little less violent than most of the others, only the occasional swift runs will get the blood pumping toward the end of the 10-mile stretch.
