Other runs: Since no resource has other runs listed for the East Branch of the North Feather, here are a few that my hitch told me of:

Indian Creek to Hot springs: Class II-II+. This 6 mile run was told to be II+ or so, but ended at a nice hot springs that you could relax in. If you stop at the hot springs for a soak (Woody's), be kind. This is on private property & is maintained by the owners for our enjoyment, at their risk of being sued by some lame-ass. Be mellow. No dogs or glass down by the water. Drop a few bucks in their colection can. (Thanks Jim for this info)

Virgilia to Rich Bar Road. You Can do just the class IV section of the run and take out. Making for a more exciting 4-5 mile run.

Rich Bar Road to Belden. Class III. The last half of the Virgilia to Belden run can be run separately for class III boaters. The put in is the same as the take out for the run above. Supposedly this is a good beginner run.
