The sparkling Swan flows through pine forests and cottonwood bottoms, providing occasional views of spectacular mountain ranges on both sides of the river. The river is mostly Class I water except for a very difficult 1-mile Class 5 section immediately below Bigfork Dam, Wicked log-jams limit most of the Swan to intermediates, butnpracticed beginners can handle specific sections. Very dangerous at high flows.
