Coffee Pot Rapids Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"A pretty and popular area along the Henry’s Fork. In 1865 George Rea became the first homesteader in the area. He was canoeing down the calm scenic Henry’s Fork one day until he unexpectedly hit a spot of large boulders and gushing white water. His supplies and canoe had all become lost in the rapids except for one small coffee pot giving this trail its name.

The popular hike follows the Henry’s Fork, initially heading downstream along calm and tranquil waters. Lodgepole pine and Douglas fir trees dominate the forest growth. Shiras moose are very common here. Also watch for raptors. After 2 miles the rapids begin cutting through rock and deadfall. The billowing
white waters are a sight to behold. Keep to the trail and make sure any canine friends do as well."
