Class II-III Truckee River, CA

Truckee City to Boca (Donner Creek Inflow to Old Boca Bridge)

From Truckee for 10 miles to the Little Truckee confluence at Boca, the river is mostly fun class II with some flat spots, although boaters encounter a class III rocky drop before downtown, and a class III boulder garden just below the Truckee sewage treatment plant. Despite an interstate highway right along the river, the surrounding mountains are beautiful, so this is a good run if you are in the area. (Nevada Department of Conservation & Natural Resources)
