The upper 2 miles of this run are wide and shallow, and the scenery is open and pleasant. As the South Fork Coquille River meanders through Powers, high riverbanks hide the town, but the scenery is occasionally contrasted by washed-out bridges and Powers’s dual solution to old automobile disposal and riparian erosion. Farther on, the river enters a scenic canyon, flows over a new fisheries weir, and offers some class 3 activity and then a 10-foot class 4 drop. After 1 mile, take out on the right just upstream of the next bridge. Character: wooded; rural.
