The Minam makes for unusual boating since it requires an expensive and difficult flight to put-ins at Red's Horse Ranch or Minam Lodge. Only small planes can land at the ranch's rough airstrip, so groups of paddlers will need to make several flights. Despite these unusual concerns, the river is spectacular. It originates high in the Wallowa Mountains and the Eagle Cap Wilderness, at Minam Lake. The area is rugged and filled with wildlife.
