A notably clear stream that flows over graveled bottoms and through cottonwood bottoms in a very picturesque valley. The entire route is Class I, but swift water, frequent log-jams, and occasional snags above Stevensville require intermediate skills. Beginners can try below Stevensville, but avoid high flows. Nothing is more spectacular than a Bitterroot float trip with the leaves in full color -- usually the first week of October.
