The Selway River is a one of the premier river runs in the US. It is very difficult to get a permit (only 60 issued each year), but the trip is awesome for multi day trips. The largest rapids are in the lower section after the Selway merges with Moose creek. That section is known as Moose Juice and is about 5 miles of rapids with the river dropping 50' per mile. Further down is Wolf Creek rapid which has very large hydraulics.
