Upper Trinity River Class 3

The Upper Trinity above Trinity Lake is a absolute classic. The river flows through a large flood plain with towering mountains flanking all sides. After about two mile you come to the largest though not the longest rapid. The Bear Creek rapid has two main parts a upper drop that is simple enough just don't go to far right and a long bolder field at the bottom with a few big holes.
The normal put in is ware HWY 3 leaves the river. Above this the river is far steeper with some gnarly drops.

The normal section is nice an scenic with continues class 2-3 rapids.
One thing to keep in mind is the river is so clear that in the spring it often looks low and rocky when it's anything but.
The river can be ran between 600-4,000cfs though it is so continuous that at the higher flows a swim would almost definitely lead to the loss of a boat. Shown below Eagle Creek rapid is the longest of the run and is about a half mile long. I think that at flows above 2,000 this run has more play waves than any thing I've been on.
