This reach is better known for its fishing and jetboating than whitewater recreation but you can
run all the way to the Pacific Ocean. Roads parallel the river offering several different access
Looking at the topo maps, you'll find a plethora of named features, almost all of which are simply 'riffles' -- gravel bars and shoals. While this reach is certainly scenic, passing through some fine canyon areas, at only 5 fpm gradient, the whitewater will most certainly be found awfully tame compared to other sections of this river.
In 2018 we celebrate this Wild and Scenic River and work to protect more rivers as part of the 50th Anniversary celebration of Wild and Scenic Rivers. Learn More.
