Wallowa River: Lower Diamond Road to Minam Map

The Wallowa River at high water provides a delightful swiftwater paddle from Lower Diamond Road to the confluence with the Minam River.

Description

At high water, this small river moves rapidly, allowing you to cover this distance in a short amount of time.

Aside from wave trains and small rapids, this section of river is relatively non-technical and barely qualifies as whitewater. This section is excellent for beginner paddlers or intermediate downriver SUPpers.

Difficulty

Moderate
