San Gabriel, California, US
|Usual Difficulty||II-III+ (for normal flows)|
|Avg. Gradient||90 fpm|
|Max Gradient||105 fpm|
Much of this run is quite visible from the road, so you can scout most of it as you drive
upstream. Gradient is mostly quite consistent, though there appears to be a few areas in which
some constriction of the streambed may cause increased concern.
It may be possible to add to this run by proceeding upstream to the end of the paved road. The river here is rather narrower, and may be subject to additional concerns. This section has approximately 120 feet of drop in approximately one mile of length.
Note: I have only 'car scouted' this run, at a time when it carried what would have been marginally boatable flow. Thus, all information here should be viewed accordingly. Anyone who has boated this stream or who otherwise has more familiarity with it is welcomed to provide more detail.
