South of Jackson, the Snake River Canyon offers spectacular Class III whitewater (which can even be Class IV with high spring water, usually in mid-June). Put in at the West Table Boat Ramp, located 21 miles south of town, and take out at the Sheep Gulch Boat Ramp. This eight-mile stretch of whitewater includes exciting features such as Taco Hole, Big Kahuna, Lunchcounter, and more. Surfers even hit the Lunchcounter rapid, which can be a standing wave; some have reportedly surfed the single wave for more than an hour. Several companies offer guided trips on this route. Another great route is a 10-mile stretch of Lower Hoback Canyon with Class III whitewater. Start your route at the Stinking Springs Bridge, located just seven miles south of Hoback Junction or head three miles farther up and launch from Hoback Canyon. This route contains wave trains that are over 200 meters long.
