About this spot
The Wawawai River Road traverses the Snake River canyon, following the north shore of the river for 27 miles from Idaho to Wawawai County Park. The landscape here is amazingly different than the typical Palouse landscape of rolling hills. Here, the river has cut through the hills and down into the layered basalt bedrock below. The river is about 2,000 lower in elevation than the surrounding Palouse hills, with the river approximately elevation 750 feet above sea level. The river itself is not free flowing, but rather a reservoir behind the Lower Granite Dam. The canyon is a good place to see wildlife, including mule deer, big horn sheep, osprey, pelicans, and other water fowl.
