Bailey's Chute

Driving north on Clearwater Valley Road from Helmcken Falls about 9 miles (14 km) takes you to Bailey's Chute, on the Clearwater River. Named for Jim Bailey, an intrepid engineer and bridge builder who died here in 1952 when his canoe overturned trying to cross the river below the falls.
