About this guide
This guide is a three star guide, meaning we consider it to be comprehensive. There’s really not much to Split Mountain, making it a wonderful trip for those new to trip planning and rafting.
If you do the shuttle yourself, you’re looking at two hours roundtrip so we suggest hiring a shuttle service.

Somewhat unusual for a day trip, permits are very limited on this section. Mid September through mid May, just one permit per day is issued. Mid May through mid-September (high season) this increases to two. Permits are first come first served.

The range to run this is wide. For rafts 800 CFS + and you’ll be okay. North of 8,000 CFS and you should be a competent boater if you’re heading out there. Keep in mind, at high flows trips taking only an hour have been reported. Which sounds really fun, but exceptionally short if you are doing a self shuttle.
