This is a pleasant run through steep terrain thickly wooded with manzanita, madrone, red cedar, and Douglas fir. While plenty of clear-cuts can be seen high on the slopes, lush riverside stands generally contain tall older trees. Cow Creek Road and a working railroad parallel the river but are not obtrusive. The river is broad and swift. There are a number of short drops with large standing waves and many play spots. Character: forested.
