River Description


Just of Hwy 101 in Cloverdale. Access is questionable, Ive been told by stopping cars that we were trespassing or walking through private property. The iron bridge does not have any signs forbidding parking or passage on the east (after you cross it) side. For take out there are some spots off the side of the road close to the creek where you probably wont get hasseled above the final Class V+. Constant landslides cause changing conditions following every storm. Scout. Very challenging run for anyone in the bay area. Winter creates challenging big water after storms, spring rains bring the level up enough to run but its usually too low for rafts.
