Bible Run


The bible stretch is a great day trip tucked into a beautiful canyon. There are several short gorges which provide the whitewater mixed in with some scenic and wildlife filled open meadows where a number of church camps have setup operation. The whitewater consists of several long continous rapids. At typical flows the difficulty never exceeds class III but the long continous nature of the rapids may strain both the composure of less experienced paddlers as well as the rescue skills of any crew who runs into trouble. The whole stretch has wood and ample caution taken. Several of the islands have dead end channels. High flows are rumored to have even bigger more continous water but with many of the features washed out.

Suggested river levels for paddling this section of the Boulder River (Yellowstone Drainage) are between a bare minimum of 1,000cfs and a high of 5,000cfs. River conditions sourced from USGS 06200000, the Boulder River At Big Timber Mt Remember only watercraft are permitted at Bible Run.
