Two long sections of the Missouri River are listed on the National Register of Wild and Scenic Rivers and provide some excellent opportunities for experienced paddlers. This run covers part of the second section starting from Myron Grove Access and ending at a take-out at Ponca State Park on the Nebraska side of the river. The large river is prone to rough waters with wind and there are segments with strong currents that require skillful paddling. This section also has some large sandbars and islands to navigate around but they do provide some good camping spots. There are multiple alternate take-outs located along the run that can be used for emergency take-out or to customize a shorter trip if needed.
