A companion website has been launched which supplements the book Guide to Idaho Paddling.  On the website you'll find updated information on Idaho rivers and changes to rivers that might have occurred since the latest edition of the book was published. From time to time, new paddling trips are added - and for folks in Northern Idaho, much more information has been added to the paddling summaries included in the book.  Here's the link: http://www.grc101.com/IdahoPaddling/index.html

We want to highlight a few of the books that members of our faculty have authored . . .

This one is entitled "Winter Tales and Trails" and is about the rich history of skiing in Idaho.  Here's a tidbit: in the mid 1800's the first substantial amount of gold was taken out of Idaho on a pair of skis.  The book is also about places to go snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, backcountry skiing and snowboarding in the state.  Cross-country Ski Magazine called it the "Standard by which other winter guidebooks are judged."

This one is entitled "Guide to Idaho Paddling" and is about easy rivers (including flat stretches and easy whitewater) in the state of Idaho.  It's a well organized, nicely written, and has great maps that you can use on the river.

Idaho has some beautiful biking. This is the incomparable Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes. It's a 71-mile paved bike path. Yes, that's right. Seventy-one miles and it's for bikes! It's a spectacular trail, taking you through some of the loveliest biking country on God's green earth.

The Great Rift (which lies south of Craters of the Moon) is a fascinating place to explore. This is near Pillar Butte, a landmark used by the pioneers traveling the Oregon Trail through Idaho.
