The little known gem Pit River in Nor Cal has been releasing water all month. It’s not to be missed in a drought year like this. Pit Falls on Pit 1 run is a great “beginner” waterfall to initiate kayakers into the wonderful world of free fall.
If you’re new to free fall, be sure to go with someone who knows it well, because even as a beginner falls, it still requires careful scouting and technical skills. Make connections on the Nor Cal Paddlers Facebook group; join here.
