Bear River Campground to Dog Bar bridge
|Use this type of tube with canvas bottom|
|Not this type of tube|
You will want to drop one car at the Dog Bar bridge in southern Nevada County where the road crosses the Bear River (park away from the one lane bridge). Hide your key somewhere on or near the vehicle as you will not want to get the electronic FOB wet and be sure to inform the people you are with where to find the key. Just in case you get hurt they will have access to driving the vehicle. Leave your towels as well as your cellular phone.
|Stay away from fallen trees or you could become trapped|
The trip will require two to two and a half hours, depending on water flow. The River is cold so be sure to inflate your tube to it's maximum level.
Be sure to wear sunscreen, a hat and a shirt as the sun is very intense. Drinking water is also a must.
Have fun and be safe.....FLOATER BEWARE and NEVER UNDER ESTIMATE THE POWER OF THE RIVER.
