The United States Congress designated the Bruneau-Jarbidge Rivers Wilderness in 2009 and it now has a total of 89,777 acres. All of this wilderness is located in Idaho and is managed by the Bureau of Land Management. The Jarbidge-Bruneau Rivers Wilderness has some of the best class V whitewater that Idaho has to offer. The Jarbidge River offers a remote and challenging 29-mile float trip taking boaters through a maze of spectacular canyons, "hoo-doo" rock spires, junipers and red volcanic cliffs. The Bruneau River flows north from headwaters in the northern Nevada mountains and is known for its sheer-walled, rocky canyons and whitewater boating opportunities. The 50-mile long Bruneau River begins at the confluence of the Jarbidge River and the West Fork Bruneau River. In the wilderness, plateaus are divided by deep, winding river canyons and provide habitats for sensitive species including bighorn sheep, redband trout, bobcat and river otter.
