River Description

This remote run requires 2 strenuous portages and is recommended for experienced expert boaters. That being said it is an incredible run. Do not make the mistake of trying to raft too low or too high. Typically run as an overnight it can be combined with the Three Bears run to make for two full days or even all the way to the Trinity River confluence at Salyer.

See the Three Bears description on cacreeks.com which includes notes on this section.
