    people prefer whitewater rafting and some kayaking, either way this area has a large number of paddling places. This is an extremely short stretch so better bring some good walking shoes. The beauty of the Central Sierra
Nevada is a great plus for this river. Not too many hotels nearby, you'll have to drive a bit to get to one, but you'd better reserve in advance because these hotels fill up quick.

The rivers for whitewater rafting and kayaking in this state are often  
tougher than in other states, so if you're not from around here don't forget that quite a few of the sections here are not easy.
