LEWIS-CLARK VALLEY Gateway to Hells Canyon

flights connecting us to Boise, Idaho, Seattle, Washington, and Salt Lake City, Utah.

At the confluence of the Clearwater and Snake rivers, Lewiston, Idaho and Clarkston, Washington are the lowest elevation points in the region at only 738 feet above sea level. That’s why you’ll find a mild climate making outdoor activities possible almost any time of year. Known as the Gateway to Hells Canyon, North America’s deepest river gorge is a must-see while in the area.

The quaint, tree-lined downtowns offer a multitude of interesting shops, historic buildings, and the nearby campus of Lewis-Clark State College, which is home to numerous regional events. Walk or bike along the Snake River trails or take a refreshing break at one of the many city parks. There is plenty to see and do in Lewis-Clark Valley with many lodging and dining options for the day’s end.

Lewiston and Clarkston’s central location makes it an ideal base when exploring the area. The Nez Perce County Regional Airport is located here with convenient

northwest competitions and beyond. With steep river canyons and plateaus within the AVA, it is home to the lowest elevation vineyards in the state that are successful in ripening a wide variety of wine grapes. This region is considered part of the new frontier of wine-growing areas in the United States. But, we actually have a long wine history. Grapes were introduced into the Clearwater Valley by 1872 and thanks to the pioneering efforts of two Frenchmen, Louis Delsol and Robert Schleicher, and one German immigrant, Jacob Schaefer, the region rapidly become known for its wines. Schleicher was most successful, taking

Map out your wine tasting adventure and make sure to take some home to share with friends and family. If you are an Alaska Air Mileage Plan member and flying out of Lewiston, your first case of wine flies free! Learn more about our wineries on page 44.

RECREATION in the Lewis-Clark Valley revolves around the rivers that flow here. Whether you're a solace-seeker or an extreme adventurer, there's plenty of river and always one more bend to explore. Between the Clearwater and Snake rivers, water enthusiasts have miles and miles of recreation to choose from. Boat launches give easy access to fishermen, wakeboarders, and waterskiers. Grab some supplies for a picnic and set up on one of the many sandy beaches for the day. Or search out a quiet lagoon to relax and enjoy the river, launch a paddleboard, or throw a line.

RIVERSIDE PATHWAYS Bicyclists, walkers and runners utilize more than 25 miles of paved pathways on the Clearwater and Snake River Recreation Trail. The Lewis-Clark Valley’s mild climate 12

DISC GOLF Going above and beyond just throwing a frisbee back and forth, Disc Golf involves strategy, skill, and a desire to have fun! Like regular golf, players tee off by throwing their discs toward the “hole” in an attempt to reach the end with the fewest throws as possible. Try your hand at the 9-hole course at Sunset Park in Lewiston (2602 11th Avenue) or at the newly finished 9-hole course at Hells Gate State Park.

VISITLCVALLEY.COM  VISITNORTHCENTRALIDAHO.ORG

SKATE PARK At Kiwanis Park in Lewiston (1114 Snake River Ave), you'll find a great skate park (12,000 sq. ft.) with three pools, one with a difficult shallow end about 6 feet deep and a deep end about 9 feet deep with good transition. Another pool is about 8 feet deep and really large with a few vertical spots, steep spots and stairs with a rail.

GOLF The Lewis-Clark Valley earned the name “Banana Belt” due to the mild winter climate. While most of the Inland Northwest is covered in snow and frost, golf courses in the valley are open for business. You can play golf every month of the year (a few locals play nearly every day) on one of four 18-hole courses in the valley. See our Golf Guide on page 53.

PUBLIC ART The North Lewiston Gateway Project provides artwork that can be appreciated as you drive into Lewiston from the north and east. Artists David Govedare and Keith Powell created a series of statues depicting the meeting of Lewis and Clark, and the Nez Perce people. Three bronze statues, created by Shirley Bothum, depict Meriwether Lewis, William Clark and Sacajawea. They are located at the intersection of Highway 12 and 21st Street.

The Lapwai Valley is historically connected to the Nez Perce people, who have inhabited the area for as long as can be remembered. The name Lapwai actually comes from the Nez Perce word "Thlap-Thlap" which refers to a butterfly and the sound its wings make. As a result of the abundance of butterflies in times past, the area has been referred to as the "Land or Place of the Butterfly." The rich history continued in 1805 when Captain Meriwether Lewis and William Clark passed through the area on their way to the Pacific with the Corps of Discovery.

SNAKE RIVER HELLS CANYON NORTH AMERICA'S DEEPEST RIVER GORGE Hells Canyon offers scenic vistas that rival any on the continent. World-class whitewater boating. Spectacular mountain peaks. Vast reaches of remote wilderness for hiking or horseback riding. Diverse and abundant wildlife. Artifacts from prehistoric tribes and rustic remains of early miners and settlers. Hells Canyon National Recreation Area truly offers something for everyone, and much to remember. Guided jet boat and rafting tours leave from Lewiston and White Bird (seasonally) daily. Hells Canyon, though a nationally famous run, has fairly easy whitewater. It is a good long trip in primitive surroundings for novice to intermediate boaters. There are two exceptions to that overall description - Wild Sheep and Granite rapids. Both are Class IV, but easily portable. Hells Canyon is also a good run for dories and inflatable kayaks, in the hands of experienced paddlers.

The river in the lower half of the canyon below the Pittsburgh Landing rafting take-out, flattens out considerably. Strong upstream breezes are common on summer afternoons and can make rowing a slow, strenuous process. The lower part of the canyon is also a popular weekend playground for jet boaters. Spring rains and snow-melt bring the canyon’s sparse vegetation to life from mid-April to mid-June. But the middle of the summer, you can expect to have very hot, very dry weather and terrific swimming. Hells Canyon boasts excellent fishing for small-mouth bass and sturgeon. The Hells Canyon National Recreation Area, managed by the Wallowa-Whitman National Forest, hugs the borders of northeastern Oregon and western Idaho. This national showcase holds 652,488 acres of beauty and adventure, where you can let your senses run as wild as the landscape.

ROAD ACCESS

PITTSBURG LANDING Pittsburg Landing is the only access by road into Hells Canyon from North Central Idaho. Just south of White Bird, take Deer Creek Road where it leaves Hwy 95 at mile marker 222. After crossing the Salmon River, turn left and stay on the main road, approximately 17 miles to Pittsburg Landing. This is a well-maintained, single-lane gravel road with turnouts that crosses the divide between the Salmon and Snake Rivers. There are steep grades on both sides of this divide, so visitors pulling travel trailers or driving RVs should use extreme caution.

LOCHSA RIVER

The Lochsa River parallels scenic Hwy 12 northeast of Lowell. The word means "rough water" in the language of the Nez Perce. From its headwaters in the Bitterroot Mountains to its confluence with the Selway and Clearwater rivers, the Lochsa pounds through more than 40 major rapids. With names like The Grim Reaper, Bloody Mary, Ten Pin Alley, and Mile Long, your heart will be pounding before you reach the rapids. The season begins in the spring and runs into August. Hwy 12 is barely visible from the river which is bordered by a cedar forest. Most outfitters use paddle boats on the Lochsa to make it a fun participatory trip. River runners camp in nearby meadows or stay in area lodges. One, two, and three-day trips are $80-$350 per person.

River Stats: Difficulty: IV- to IV+; Trip Length: 30 mi.; Put in: White Pine or Nine Mile; Take Out: Split Creek or Knife Edge

3

CLEARWATER RIVER

Take a day float from Kooskia to Orofino or from Orofino to the confluence of the Snake River. The Clearwater River provides an easy float along scenic Hwy 12. Wildlife viewing is good here and the river is very easy to access. Join outfitters and local historians to float where the 26

MIDDLE FORK CLEARWATER RIVER

The Lochsa and the Selway come together at Lowell to form the Middle Fork of the Clearwater. Along Hwy 12 below Lowell is a pleasant summer Class II canoe float. During spring runoff, the river could be dangerous for canoes because of high river flows. The riverbed is wide at this point. The beginning of the float begins in lush cedar forests but gradually drier vegetation becomes more pronounced towards the end. While in the area, we recommend driving up the Selway for a look at the falls. You could consider a float down the lower section of the Selway. This would make an excellent family canoe trip, first time raft or fishing trip. In the fall, this is premium steelhead country.

River Stats: Difficulty: II- to II+; Trip Length: 23 mi.; Put in: Lowell; Take Out: Kooskia

MAIN SALMON RIVER

The "River of No Return" is an ideal family section with mainly class III rapids. It is considered a wilderness section but has ranches located along the route of the Main Salmon which allow people to choose lodge-tolodge stays. Outfitter and personal jet boat/float trips are highly regulated by the Forest Service to eliminate over populating the river system. Most people take six days to run the 80 roadless miles to Vinegar Creek. Most of the canyon is densely forested with ponderosa pine, Douglas fir and some grand fir. There is good hiking up side creeks and good fishing near their confluences. Attractions not to be missed include Barth Hot Springs and the old Painter Mine at river mile 274. And check out Buckskin Bill’s old homestead a mile below Painter Mine. Buckskin Bill (real name Sylvan Hart) died in 1980. He was known as "the last of the mountain men." He built his own house, raised his own food, and made his own guns and tools.

River Stats: Difficulty: III to IV; Trip Length: 85 mi.; Put in: Corn Creek; Take Out: Vinegar Creek

6

MIDDLE FORK SALMON RIVER

The Middle Fork of the Salmon flows through the Frank Church - River of No Return Wilderness, the largest forest wilderness in the lower 48 states. The Middle Fork is the historical origin of wilderness whitewater rafting trips (most last five nights and six days) and the most popular long river trip in Idaho. It combines a

beautiful wilderness setting with 100 frequent rapids over 100 miles, hot springs, reserved forest campsites, limited access and party size, and no jet boats allowed. In 1968, the Middle Fork was protected as a Wild River, becoming part of the National Wild and Scenic Rivers System. Kayakers with intermediate-level skills and a good roll should have no difficulty on any part of the river at any water level.

River Stats: Difficulty: III to IV; Trip Length: 100 mi.; Put in: Dagger Falls; Take Out: Main Salmon

7

SALMON RIVER ABOVE RIGGINS

Massive ponderosa pine and vertical granite slabs adorn the scenic drive up the Salmon above Riggins. During runoff, several huge rapids - Vinegar, Ruby and Lake Creek - get "way gnarly" and always should be scouted. The river can be unpredictable at high-water flows and requires an experienced outfitter to navigate. In mid-June, things mellow out and the river turns into a playground. The rapids become more drop-pool in nature. Good kayak play spots emerge, especially around the Wind River Bridge, with long flat spots in between. This is excellent Class III canoe, raft, and dory country. Fishing can be excellent with fall and winter being the time to stalk the elusive sea-run rainbow trout, otherwise known as steelhead. Camping is fantastic.

The Lower Salmon Canyon is probably Idaho’s most underrated long river trip. It is particularly good late in the summer when other rivers have too little volume to provide exciting rapids. This offers a rare opportunity to do a spur-ofthe-moment, three-to five-day trip on the river since permits are readily available. There’s not a river in the world that has better camping than there is on the lower Salmon’s big, white beaches. Most people take four to five days to do the trip.

River Stats: Difficulty: III- to IV; Trip Length: 80 mi.; Put in: Hammer Creek, Rock Creek; Take Out: Eagle Creek, Heller Bar

SALMON RIVER BELOW RIGGINS

Riggins to Lucille is a maximum-fun Class III run. It features lots of "big-water" rapids, yet is a relatively safe run. The adjacent road (good for scouting), deep water and clear channels are comforting to novices. This "premier" 10-mile stretch, during the mid-summer months, offers the best day trip whitewater in Idaho! Swimming, playing on beaches, and bouncing a raft through fun class III rapids will surely put a smile on your face! Rapids like "Time Zone, Tight Squeeze" and "Fiddle Creek" provide excitement for all types of boaters. From guided to private rafting, this stretch is the most popular in Idaho at this time of year. From Riggins to Lucille there are ramps and access points along US Highway 95. Commercial outfitters are available for walk-in rafters in Riggins.

SALMON RIVER LOWER GORGE

The Selway River is a Nationally designated Wild and Scenic River flowing through the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness Area. There are a number of great class II and III rapids as the river flows through lush stands of old-growth forest with great campsites along the way. The Race Creek take-out is just upstream of the Meadow Creek confluence where Forest Road 223 comes up river from Highway 12 at Lowell. In another mile the Selway cascades through Selway Falls, a boiling cauldron of holes and sieves that is best enjoyed from the overlook along the road as you start your drive home.

With riding elevations ranging from 3,000 feet to over 7,000 feet, the area receives 120 to 200 inches of snow, much of which is that dry, fluffy powder you only dream of riding in.
