Trinity, S. Fork, California, US
6. Surprise Creek to Salyer (Three Bears)
||IV (for normal flows)
The Three Bears refer to three Class IV rapids below Surprise Creek. Boaters typically take out
at the Low Bridge (mile 5.5) or continue to Sandy Bar (mile 12.5), however, this can be run as
one long day to Salyer (no easy road access). Below the Low Water Bridge the South Fork is Class
II but there are several mid-channel strainers that create dangerous hazards--be aware.
