Snake River - Star Falls to Twin Falls; Murtaugh Stretch [SN6]
The Murtaugh Section, 20 miles upstream from town and 2 miles below the Cauldron Linn (Star Falls), is know as one of the premiere day trips in the country. When the water flows in the spring it is a strong CLASS 4 � section of river. With 16 major rapids in 14 miles, the Snake drops an impressive 25 ft. per mile in this deep Basalt canyon. Waterfowl and birds of prey abound as does significant archaeological sites of Native people and more recently Chinese, whose mining sites are numerous in this part of the Snake.
