First Impressions of the Payette Cabarton Run

Outstanding…that is all I can say. I took my first run down from the Cabarton Bridge to Smith’s Ferry. This is more of a wilderness run than the Main Payette – winding in a valley off the road for about 9 miles before following the road from Rainbow Bridge to Smith’s Ferry.

We looked like an armada with a raft (7 people), 8 hardshells, 2 IKs, and a hydrospeed. Somehow we kept track of everyone.

Fun class II’s with great spots for eddy turns. Big – long class III’s and the final monster drop at Howards Plunge (III+).

If you’re looking for a day long float with a big class III and a remote feel – the Cabarton is the run for you!
