Snake River Hells Canyon
I'm planning a Hell's Canyon trip, and was hoping to get some information about whether to do the Wild Section with kids. Specifically, I was wondering if it is an option to walk around Wild Sheep and Granite? Also, the Forest Service Guide Book lists Lower Bernard Creek, Waterspout, and Rush Creek as III-IV, but I haven't heard much information about those rapids. Are they relatively straight forward read-and-run? Finally, I was wondering about the RiverMaps guide compared to the Forest Service guide. My experience is that some of the RiverMaps have great information (e.g. the Grand Canyon Guide), while others seem to be essentially a waterproof book of maps with rapids and camps labelled. What are thoughts on the Snake/Lower Salmon RiverMaps?
