This is a favorite of floaters because of lengthy pools, numerous gorges and long floatable channels with current.

EUCHRE GORGE

On this outing we set up a shuttle and hike down the Euchre Bar Trail. There is 1600 feet of elevation loss, but it occurs on a good trail. To lengthen the trip we cross the river on the footbridge and hike up canyon.

EUCHRE GORGE

Because of the intense concentration of poison oak on this part of the trip long pants are mandatory. By hiking up canyon we take in Euchre Bar Gorge. Down canyon from here it is pool after pool until our arrival at Green Valley. Here we deflate our air mattresses and fill our water bottles.

EUCHRE GORGE

To get to the main trail there is a short bushwack through poison oak. After this the trail improves and rises 1600 feet to the trail head.
