Marker Description: HORSE SHOE BEND

The "Gutter" on the Payette River is also known as the fish ladder and is located in the middle of Horseshoe Bend. The Gutter has become the afternoon playground for loads of play boaters.

It was desinged to accommodate a river diversion for the Horseshoe Bend Hydroelcectic project, with boaters and surfers in mind. On weekends and weekday afternoons you can expect to see many paddlers, surfers and BBQ's.

Three surfing waves in succession. Great play spot.

Getting here:
North on State Hwy 55 for about 20 miles/ Right on Pioneer Ave just prior to crossing the first bridge over the Payette - the beginning of Horseshoe Bend - continue for 2 miles. At the end of the pavement ends there is an access road to the parking area.
