North Fork Rogue River: Natural Bridge to Woodruff Campground Professional Review and Guide
"This fun run has only recently been discovered by boaters around Oregon but more than likely has been run for some time by local boaters. The run contains a lot of fun class 3 to 4 rapids set in a narrow canyon with beautiful forested banks. Be sure to take some time to hike upstream and gape at the natural bridge, where the entire river disappears into a hundred-foot-long lava tube that has to be seen to be believed. Immediately upstream of the recommended put-in is a tough class 5 rapid with a large cave on the left. Most boaters will opt to put-in just below the pedestrian bridge. Just downstream from the put-in, the action starts immediately with a long, steep drop with some big holes and interesting moves, then the river assumes a pool drop nature. After some smaller rapids, paddlers arrive at Karma, one of the best rapids on the river."
