This is a nice beginning and intermediate run. The sections above and below it can be run, too, but are shallower. The sandstone riverbed is wide and strewn with small to medium-size boulders. It becomes quite muddy and laden with wood during heavy rains, due to logging activity. Regeneration of streamside clear-cutting is beginning to improve the appearance of the corridor. The Coos River can be run only on weekends because the Weyerhaeuser Company restricts access during the week. Character: private land; forested; canyon.
