Las Escalas Valley
After an exciting morning in the Infierno Canyon, the river widens with spectacular views of the Las Escalas Valley. The Las Escalas section is essentially moving flat-water with riffles. There are a few surf waves and rocks to practice stern squirts but no feature worthy of note. Enjoy the respite after Infierno Canyon and find a quiet beach to stop for a snack or lunch.
High and Low Water
At high water the trip through Las Escalas Valley can quite fast but the water still remains essentially flat.
