Feather River of California

The entire middle fork of the Feather River, beginning at the confluence of its tributary streams - approximately one kilometer south of Beckwourth - was declared a United States National Wild an Scenic River on October 2, 1968. 32.9 miles of the river were designated "wild", 9.7 miles were designated "scenic", and 35 miles were designated "recreational". The Feather River is managed by the Plumas National Forest Office of the U.S. Forest Service.
