The Rocky Mountain Region currently has two rivers designated as Wild and Scenic rivers.

Cache la Poudre is located on the Arapaho and Roosevelt National Forests. Flowing from above treeline in Rocky Mountain National Park, the river is characterized by pools, cascades and waterfalls as it descends into a dense spruce-fir forest. Recreation includes outstanding whitewater boating, excellent backpacking, fishing, camping, picnicking and hiking.

Clarks Fork of the Yellowstone is located on the Shoshone National Forest. Named after William Clark of the Lewis and Clark Expedition, the Clarks Fork flows through a deep, postcard-scenic canyon. Its tumultuous waterfalls, whitewater cascades, deep pools, and rugged corridor lands are its unique characteristics.

More information about these two rivers and other Wild and Scenic Rivers can be found at www.nps.gov/rivers.
