River Description

From Bill Tuthill:

This scenic stretch can be run after a large rainstorm. The put-in requires a carry from State Park headquarters down to the creek. Be on guard for logjams. There is a large one with huge redwood trees about a third of the way down. Another big one is about two thirds of the way down. Carry around, or take out above the dam in Memorial Park. When the creek joins the road, rapids become more III'ish. If you have time to run this section, take out at the first bridge on Pescadero Road.

My bro and I ran Pescadero on 2-21-05 we had about 330 cfs. It seemed perfect. We had 4 or 5 log jams but no portage took more than 5 minutes. we could paddle up to some of them with ease. I would not run this creek too much higher because the logjams would be harder to negotiate. beatiful scenery fun little rapids easy put in and take out just like Bill says. took us just over 2 hours to paddle about 6 miles.
