A Boaters Paradise - Snake River Water Trail


By Andrew Reed

Glenns Ferry, Idaho (KMVT-TV/KTWT-TV) A new water trail in the magic valley is ready for boaters to explore.

A two-year planning process of the Idaho Oregon Snake River waterway is complete.

It’s called the Idaho Oregon Snake River water trail.

It covers more than two-hundred miles of the remarkable river, canyon lands, deserts, and river communities.

"They can use their boat in anyway, they can fish, stroll down the river, they can stop along the way” said Mayor Joanna Lanham, City of Glenns Ferry.

The Idaho Oregon Snake River water trail has been in the works since 2009. More than 70-community members took part in the planning process, and it all starts at Three Island Crossing State Park in Glenns Ferry.

"The waterway starts here in Glenns Ferry and goes all the way to Farewell Bend, Oregon. It will bring a lot of tourism in and promote all the cities along the way” said Lanham.

The trail stretches from Southwest Idaho to Eastern Oregon.

A water trail is a route that provides recreational and educational opportunities to the river communities.
