At the Morley Nelson Snake Rider Birds of Prey National Conservation Area you can hike deep into the heart of a pristine natural place that attracts one of the densest concentrations of breeding and nesting raptors in the world. Every spring over 800 pairs of falcons, eagles, hawks and owls descend upon this scenic conservation area to mate and breed, making it the ideal destination for bird-watchers, photographers, hikers and all nature lovers.
At Dedication Point, overlooking the rim of the Snake River Canyon, you can get great views of some of the nesting sites and walk the short 1/4 mile interpretive trail. Hikers, bikers and horse-riders can enjoy several trails along the Halverson Bar, a 2-mile sandbar adjacent to the Snake River, which passes remnants of old mining sites and homesteads, and at Halverson lake you can go canoeing, kayaking and fishing.
The Cove Recreation Site is another place where you can fish, swim, hike and enjoy both motorized and non-motorized water sports in addition to wildlife viewing and picnicking, and you can set up your tent or park your RV at the camping facility on the south shore of the C.J. Strike Reservoir. At Swan Falls Dam you can see the historic old hydroelectric plant, go fishing and have a picnic.
