This hike is in a section of the Obed Scenic River within the Obed and Emory River Gorges.  The first 2.5 miles to Alley Ford is rated moderate and the final 2.5 miles is difficult as you find yourself hiking down into the Obed basin where there are rocky and steep stairs and rocks to climb over.  We will hike to Break Bluff which offers a beautiful view of the river gorge.  Hiking sticks are strongly recommended to maneuver the difficult rocky areas. 

Hiking boots are recommended. Driving directions will be provided the morning of the hike.
Bring water and a trail lunch. Carpooling is recommended, passengers are asked to contribute $6 to the driver to help cover gas, etc.
