                      Car: Necessary

                      The Smith River is one of the crown jewels of the National Wild and Scenic River System, which recognizes and protects rivers across the country. More than three hundred miles of the Smith River System are designated wild and scenic, more than any other river in the country. The emerald-green Smith River flows freely and naturally, without a single dam, for its entire length—the only major system in California to do so.

                      Hiking in this area is fabulous. If you enjoy communing with nature this area and retreat is the perfect match for your rejuvenation and inspiration.

                       

                      Owner info

                      About the owner: The Smith River is one of the most Idyillic and beautiful places anywhere. After visiting over 50 countries I have not seen a place more pristine and vibrant.

                      Why the Owner Chose Gasquet:
                      To spend time enjoying the beauty of the Smith River and Six Rivers National Forest. I want to share it with others who appreciate such a peaceful and natural place.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      You can swim and hike is so many beautiful places here and often have them all to yourself. The water in the river is crystal clear and among the cleanest and freshest rivers anywhere. Wild Salmon, Steelhead and Ocean going Cutthroat Trout are plentiful but ellusive.
