There is a ramp which makes it easy to get on the river. The current averaged about 4.5 mph and a few times it was about 8 mph in the riffles. Enough to make the trip fast and easy, but not dangerous if you pay attention to snags and shallow water.
The birding along this stretch is fantastic. Eight Bald Eagles, Blue Herons, Kingfishers, egrets and a cast of thousands.
This is pretty much uninhabited riparian habitat. This run is 13 miles which took 3 hr moving, but there are several large gravel / sand bars to stop and explore. Pack a lunch. The river flow varies with weather and water released from Shasta Dam
The RV Park and Marina are on Hidden Harbor Drive off Vina-Tehama Road in Los Molinos.
