River Description

See the description in Bill Tuthill's excellent California Creekin, with lotsa pictures.

Warning: The putin listed here is on private property. It is recommended that the boater find a legal putin, or find another creek to run.

There are other cautions on this run. There are at least four mandatory portages; there's barbed wire. And if the run is high, it could get very serious indeed. A word to the wise.
