Pauley Creek Falls

Downieville, California 95936 USA

“Sweet Serenity at the Falls!”

Pauley Creek Falls is a small waterfalls located in  the cit of Downieville. Kyaking can be done in the area. These two creeks, both tributaries of Downieville Creek (called a river on most maps) have nearly identical flows, and are separated by a narrow ridge with convenient dirt road for shuttling. Most people run both in the same day, usually Lavezzola first so Pauley Falls can serve as a climax. Lavezzola contains a class IV granite gorge and two harder rapids, one normally portaged, near the end. Pauley is basically a bunch of waterfalls connected by class II rapids. But what amazing waterfalls they are! The tallest ones are 25' and 15' high, yet it would be hard to rate either class V except at high flow. Wood is the principal hazard on both runs.
