Memorial Beach to Crow Bar
4 Miles – 1.5 to 3 Hours
Our Half Day is the best on the Russian River! You’ll find a great current, plenty of clean, clear water and loads of beaches for excellent river swimming and cooling off during our hot summer days. Take your time and lazily float this easy 4-mile stretch of Russian River immediately downstream of Healdsburg. It’s perfect for families with young children, as well as visitors who don’t have a lot of time, but still want to enjoy the magic of our beautiful river.
