Report

Account Final scenic canyon section before the take-out at Oak Flat. Most of the rapids in the final few miles are class II separated by long pools but the canyon scenery is impressive with some varied and interesting geology. The take-out area at Oak Flat on river right. The California Pitcher Plant, Darlingtonia californica, can be found throughout the river canyon clinging to the bedrock walls where the water of springs percolates through crevices in the rock. Insects attracted by the nectar are utilized as a nutrient source.
