Near Colfax, this is commonly known as the Chamberlain Falls class IV river run for kayaking and rafting.
In the summer with low water, it transforms into one of the best places to swim in the area. A steep sided canyon with clear green water, deep pools, lots of granite to climb on and jump off of.
We'll park at the bridge and hike down river as far as we want, swim, snorkel, sunbathe, lunch, etc.
The trail is rocky, and there will be places where we scramble over boulders or just swim down the river a bit. Good swimming skills are needed for this, and good shoes for a rocky trail, maybe even shoes you can get wet.
Meet in Auburn for directions and carpooling.
