Royal Gorge (Soda Springs To Tadpole Creek)
The American River, North Fork begins it's life just behind Squaw Valley ski resort on the west facing slopes of the sierras. Professional kayakers have scoped out and started adding this run to their repertoir. The north fork is very steep and small up here and contains a handful of sizable waterfalls. Portaging is common (even for the best kayakers) but for those who choose to run (and have the ability to) these drops can say they've completed the "Royal Flush" of the Royal Gorge.
Suggested river levels for paddling this section of the American River, North Fork are between a bare minimum of 750cfs and a high of 2,000cfs.
