Auto Tour: The Hoback Canyon in Fur Trade History, Thursday, July 7, 10am
Following the Hoback River provided travelers a way to cross between the Green and Snake Rivers. Named for John Hoback, a Kentuckian who trapped the region as early as 1810, the Hoback and its canyon are frequently mentioned in period diaries. This tour explores numerous sites along the river that played a role in early fur trade history. Beginning at the Park & Ride at Hoback Junction (just east of the intersection of Hwys 26 and 189), the guided tour will make several stops along the river, and end at the east end of Hoback Canyon.
Meet guide Jim Hardee at Hoback Junction Park & Ride at 10am, July 7. Drive your own vehicle. Carpooling is encouraged. Tour is free.
