This is a beautiful run, with massive fir trees and clear, cold whitewater. The North Fork Rogue is one of the few rivers in Oregon where you can experience a combination of alpine boating and a hot summer sun, usually with enough water all summer. The rapids in this run, though easier than the upper North Fork section, have some of the same characteristics: lots of ledgy mossed-over lava rocks and the constant potential for sweepers. Many of the rapids are fairly technical and require catching an eddy before threading the needle between the rocks. Many of the rocks are the nasty type that lurk just below the surface and grab your boat at unexpected moments. There are plenty of class 3+ drops in this short run. There are two or three class 4 drops in the second and third miles. The routes through the rapids are generally easy to see and, if not, scouting is always possible. After reaching the reservoir, continue paddling 0.3 mile to the take-out.
