The North Fork Trask River flows through second-growth coastal forest and drains an area of steep ridges punctuated by high rock walls, canyons, and frequent waterfalls. The upper half of this scenic run contains most of the significant rapids, including three drops approximately 3 miles from the put-in. The second of these drops is a riverwide basalt ledge with the flow pouring over the right side. Shortly downstream is a rapid formed by a landslide. Scout/ portage on the left. A significant boulder garden can be found downstream from the landslide rapid. Rock gardens and small play spots are plentiful. While rapids are less frequent on the lower half of the run, the road and river part company, providing a sense of isolation as well as a difficult hike out if problems arise. Character: forested valley.
