The Middle Fork of the Feather River was one of the first
nationally designated wild and scenic rivers. The river
runs from its headwaters near Beckwourth to Lake Oroville, and has three zones: recreation,
scenic, and wild. Any part of the river in this canyon may be rugged and difficult to access.
In the wild zone, precipitous cliffs, waterfalls, and huge boulders discourage most people from trying
to float or hike. While the scenic zones are less rugged, they still require great preparation and caution.
