I hiked the canyon section of the NF CDA last weekend and would be
interested in floating it this Sunday. It's a beautiful canyon
stream that is rated by AW as II(III). However, at these levels it
looks like swiftwater with a little bit of II. It is roadless and
the only way to get in there is by foot or boat. The water will be
low, but I believe this will be the last weekend that it's possible
to float this year. I have pictures from my hike if you're
interested and might be able to get someone to shuttle us. It's a
little less than 2 hours drive from CDA.
There is a lot of wildlife in the area. Last weekend I saw 2 bear
and 5 moose.
