South Fork of the American River (Kyburz)

Kyburz is a class 4/4+ and the flow was 1,000 cfs when we ran it. The putin is three miles below the town of Kyburz, just below a class 5+ rapid. The entire run is about eight miles long. The takeout is at the Highway 50 bridge.

This is where we putin.

Looking upsteam where we putin.

The rapids were continuous.This is a rapid that we scouted.
