Beginning at the Trapper Landing (reached by turning off US-187 at mile #106 and taking county road #110 south for four miles), the river continues south along the base of The Mesa. This Class I float travels through a shallow valley and passes many small islands. You have a good view of the Wind River Range to the northeast and occasional glimpses of the Wyoming Range to the west. One hour downstream you go under a small bridge and then two more bridges, also spaced about an hour apart. About two hours from the third bridge is the confluence with Cottonwood Creek.

A bit below the confluence, the river makes a couple of jogs to the east and begins traveling through the center of the valley. Here you can see Ross Ridge to the far south. About one hour below Cottonwood Creek is a fence across the river and a small diversion dam. Three or four miles further is the W-351 Bridge Landing at mile #7 (upstream and on river left). Here you can see the Wyoming Range to the west, Ross Ridge to the south, and Ross Butte to the east. Float time from Trapper Landing to W-351 is six hours.
