North Fork Championship VII

The North Fork Championship; an adventurous kayaking event that is located at the gateway of Garden Valley, the North Fork of the Payette River. “They said it’s the rowdiest white water event in the world. Maybe it is, but that’s just how we do it in Idaho.” -Ryan Bailey

Idaho has some of the most beautiful scenery. The quiet serenity of Idaho’s Mountain ranges are home to many peaceful locations. For outdoor enthusiasts, it can also be the source of wild fun! Garden Valley offers everything from kayaking adventures to hiking up to peaceful hot springs.

“It’s beautiful. There’s not many places left on the planet that have the attributes of Idaho. When I arrived in Idaho for the first time, and drove up to the South Fork of the Payette, I got on this wave and I parked there and I knew I was home. I ended up actually moving to Idaho. It’s this combination of wilderness and no people.” -Gerry Moffat
