Rocky Bend Campground to Blaine on the Nestucca River
This river consists mostly of class II/III whitewater, but the first 1.5 miles are nearly continuous class IV rapids with one class V drop called Silver Falls. If you plan to run the first 1.5 miles remember to scout or portage at river level because most of the land is private property. After the class IV/V start the river calms to continuous class III with great scenery all the way to the take out.
