Black Canyon of the Bear release dates.

2015 release dates for Idaho’s Black Canyon of the Bear River have been set for April 11, 12, 24, 25 and 26, and May 16, 17, 30 and 31.

This is a burley class IV run with one portagable class V. If you wish to check it out and paddle, consider staying at my place of residence at Bristol Cabins river side resort and sustainable eco-village in Lava Hot Springs, only 15 minutes from Black Canyon of the Bear. Alongside our beautiful mountainside resort is the popular Portneuf River for beginner and intermediate paddlers. We also have the worlds best hot springs!
