New School Guide to Northern California Whitewater by Dan Menten

Menten’s new guide book has been in the works for over eight years. It includes 135 run descriptions, GIS-generated precision maps, fun stories, and photos. Menten has run all but three of the reaches in the book so you can be sure that he has personally fact-checked every detail.

This is the first guidebook to come out of this region in over 20 years and is by far the most thorough. It captures the heart and soul of NorCal river culture and is a must-have for anyone interested in kayaking, rafting, or whitewater in general.

Buy directly from Menten and he’ll even sign the book if you ask.
