Rancheria Creek, California, US
|Usual Difficulty||II+(III) (for normal flows)|
|Avg. Gradient||29 fpm|
This is basically an upstream extension of the more-popular Mountain View Road to Hendy Woods run. Easy put-in at the Fish Rock Road bridge. The creek is brushy in spots along the road, with good scenery as it progresses. Mysteriously brush disappears as the creek veers away from the road. Around mile 7.5, a class 3-4 rapid occurs, a sharp drop among rocks. Shortly afterwards rapids ease. See the description at CAcreeks.com.
