Camp Baker To Eden Bridge
The Smith River is unique to Montana in 2 ways. First it is the only permitted river currently in Montana and second it runs for 59 miles without any kind of vehicle access. The Smith is one of the best multi-day floats in the western US. Not because of the whitewater but because of the fishing, solitude and scenery. Pulling a permit is tough since only 9 parties launch a day. If you have kids, this is a great trip to introduce them to multi-day river trips.
Suggested river levels for paddling this section of the Smith River are between a bare minimum of 300cfs and a high of 2,000cfs.
