The Bear River springs to life in the upper reaches of the Uinta Mountains and takes a circuitous route for 350 miles before emptying into the Great Salt Lake. Join your instructor, a seasoned long-distance paddler, for a kayak adventure along The Bear, the longest river in North America whose waters never reach the ocean. Paddlers will get a chance to witness an incredible riparian landscape consisting of old-growth cottonwood, nutrient-rich farmland, and a litany of birds and animals that call the Bear River Valley home. Paddlers should be comfortable on Class I moving water and have already taken a beginning kayaking course.
