River Description


An anonymous contributor provides (2009-03-07):

This is usually broken up into three runs. The upper-IV to IV+, the middle-III to IV- and the gorge or lower new-V. Make sure you don't put on the lower when flows are high or rising. You have to paddle 5 miles before getting to any drops from put in so there is time for it to rise a lot before you get there. At high flows people have slept in snow...brrrrrr! Many of these drops are very difficult to portage and a few are impossible. If in doubt about the Gorge, the upper is much friendlier and still offers good Salmon River(California) like rapids. Then again, if your ready, the gorge is as close to Sierra classics as your gonna get around here without a ten hour drive and well worth it. The character is quite clean and granitic for the region and the views are immaculate. As far as the Denny run goes, your better off going somewhere closer to where ever your driving from. It's a pretty run of the mill boulder garden class III with the occasional playspot. if it's flowing so is a lot of other stuff.
