South Umpqua River: Milepost 22 to Days Creek Professional Review and Guide
"The scenery varies at almost every turn—low rock cliffs, volcanic tuff, extensive gravel bars, and rolling hills. The river has many pleasant riffles over gravel bars that become very fast and turn into big waves at higher flows. It passes under a covered bridge at mile 2.1, and from there it is only about 0.5 mile to the concrete bridge in Milo. At mile 3.6 is a low ledge with a sticky reversal. After several miles of slow water, one hardly suspects the major class 4 rapid at mile 11.2, where the river slices through a low rock outcropping. Below this drop, the river bounces through delightful water with many play spots to the take-out. Character: rural."
