    Grande Ronde River Tony Vey Meadows to Red Bridge State Park

    Grande Ronde River: Tony Vey Meadows to Red Bridge State Park Professional Guide

    Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

    "The put-in is near an old dam at the edge of Tony Vey Meadows, though the 8 miles above Tony Vey Meadows also provide an easy and attractive float for boaters and anglers. The river meanders through meadowlands in cattle country, with a potential hazard of barbed-wire fences across the river. The river changes character abruptly after Tony Vey Meadows and quickly becomes narrow, rocky, and swift.

    Fairly steep, well-timbered slopes and generally dense streamside vegetation border this section. Several campgrounds and picnic sites afford comfortable rest stops. The Stygian Steps are a series of drops that require scouting from the road during the shuttle, about 3.5 miles upstream from Utopia Campground. On the river, they are about 0.3 mile below the River Picnic Site. Character: forested."
