CLASS III-IV     20 miles
My Fav swimming hole in my life was Hogs Back Indian Dwellings. In school I had studied about ISHI. Being a Cherokee of Breed and brother and a cousin. There was dwellings and cliffs to dive from (50 ft.) The most beautiful place I had ever seen. On that creek I had Vision. Says Randy Stacy

Where does this route start and where does it end? does it include the canyon? Says E Jackson

The wonderful Tehama County scenery and the
    water flowing gracefully down Antelope Creek are reasons enough to come here and paddle. The average California whitewater rafting or kayaking river tends to be a bit harder to master than those in other states, so you'd
better keep in mind that a large number of rivers in this state are not easy. A good workout and spending some quality time in nature are great attractions for lots of people. The Northern Sierra Nevada scenery is wonderful. There are some good stretches to paddle in this river system, the Hogsback Road to Cone Grove Road stretch is one of them. The Hogsback Road to Cone Grove Road section of Antelope Creek in Tehama County is 20 miles long  
and is according to American Whitewater a class III-IV section of whitewater. You can pitch a tent or park your RV at a nearby campground. You might be into whitewater rafting or kayaking or both, doesn't matter, this area has a pretty small number of paddling rivers. The nearby hotels are a bit away from the river, but you'd better reserve in advance because these hotels fill up quick. If you're coming from Red Bluff it's not a long drive at all to the starting location, please print out a copy of the road map further down the page so you won’t get lost. If you hurry you can run this section in a day but why not make it an overnighter, so why not pack your sleeping bag too.
