NOTES

The pool and drop nature of the West Fork San Gabriel River is the perfect compliment to the constant gradient character of the East Fork. The West Fork is steeper and more technical than the East Fork, and at normal flows a bit more difficult.

The usual put-in for the run is at the Hwy. 39 bridge.
