11 drop-pools; a total of 2,600 feet in length, or one-half mile. Five drop pools in the north channel; six in the south channel for kayaking maneuvers that decrease slightly in elevation with each successive pool, to keep them supplied with fresh water.

7,000 tons of smooth flat-top rocks and boulders installed along the river banks and in-stream for easy public access, spectators, and kayaking maneuvers.

Kayakers, at all levels, including beginners, can enjoy the whitewater park.

Deep pools with continual fresh water provide good habitat for fish, particularly Lahontan cutthroat trout. Find out more about fishing in the Truckee River here.
