California whitewater, Cottonwood Creek - North Fork

Shasta county, Sunny Hill Road to Platina Road bridge Close to Ono section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.

 

CLASS IV     4 miles
  The scenic beauty of California and the beautiful way the water current moves down the stream make the trip here worthwhile. Whitewater rafting and kayaking in this state is often more difficult than elsewhere, so better not forget that quite a few of the sections here are not easy. The put-in location is a short drive from Redding, as you can see on the road map further down. 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. Getting a good workout and spending some quality time in nature are great attractions for lots of people. The Sunny Hill Road to Platina Road
bridge Close to Ono section of Cottonwood Creek - North Fork in Shasta County is 4 miles long and has been determined by American Whitewater to be a class IV section. Some people prefer whitewater rafting and some kayaking, either way this is an area with plenty of places for that. This is a pretty decent length section, good for a one day paddling trip.
