Class I-II Niobrara River, NE

Ft. Niobrara NWR to Berry Bridge (Fort Niobrara Launch to Berry Bridge)

Perhaps the epitome of a prairie river, the Niobrara is known as a biological crossroads. Although passing primarily through private land, it also flows through the Fort Niobrara National Wildlife Refuge and the largest single holding of The Nature Conservancy where bison have been reintroduced. The upper portion provides excellent canoeing.
