Santa Ana River

Filaree Flats to confluence with Deer Creek

IMPORTANT NOTICE - WARNING!


SUMMARY
Location:

San Bernardino National Forest, northeast of Redlands, California

Put-in:

Filaree Flats (4500'). Turnout with two tall pines was 1.2-1.3 miles down Forest Service 1N09. A fisherman’s trail leads to the river. This avoids several portages due to wood if you put-in at the bridge on Seven Oaks Rd.

Gradients:

1) 160   2) 280   3) 360
Average: 270 fpm

Take-out:

Confluence with Deer Creek (3686').

NOTES

Put in at 9:15 and took out at 3:00. About same water level as when we did the bottom mile. Many good drops. Two excellent bed-rock gorges. Lots of wood.

Here is a Trip Report that combines the segments from Seven Oaks Rd. down to The Bear Creek diversion dam.
