The ‘Wild & Scenic’ Scott River is a classic California spring river, with difficult advanced-expert whitewater and clear mountain waters. The Scott, a major tributary to the Klamath, is generally run from mid-late spring, fed by the snowmelt from the Marble Mountain Wilderness area and Salmon-Trinity Alps.
Flowing through the rain-shadowed eastern slopes of the mountains, the Scott is loaded with Class IV-V advanced level rapids with little rest between. Large boulders choke the river creating big drops, powerful holes and opportunity for lots of technical raft maneuvering.
Previous whitewater experience and good physical fitness are necessary on the Scott. Trips along the Scott range from 1-2 days in length though trips can continue onto the Klamath for additional mileage
