South Fork Canyon Special Recreation Management Area
Located northwest of South Fork State Recreation Area, South Fork Canyon offers access to the South Fork River. Float the river in tubes, kayaks or canoes. Along the river you will have the opportunity to see part of the California National Historic Trail (Hastings Cutoff), wildlife, deep limestone canyon walls, and cultural sites. The best time to float the river is during spring runoff. The river is mostly Class I with limited Class II areas (only at peak flows). There are no developed facilities or campgrounds on BLM lands. Roads along the river are primitive and travel is not advised during periods of moisture.
