It's fine if it's on your way to the coast but it's not worth an extra trip to see it. The redwoods are beautiful but there are many other better places to see them.

Just a nice meandering river, this place provided a half day's worth of old fashioned charm, allowing us to sit and skip stones, and watch some dogs splash and play in the shallow waters as we did. Great fun in Boonville!

Good swimming hole under Hendy Woods bridge, on Philo, greenwood road, but with drought this year, very low water. Wet years, great place.

Took a walk with the doggie under the bridge. Families playing in the water and boys with fishing poles. How much more Americana can it get? Sandy beach easy to get to. Water clean and shallow.

Like most coastal rivers, the Navarro changes character with the seasons, In the winter, when the rains keep pouring down, it can turn big brown and muddy, sweeping huge trees down and overflowing its banks, flooding hwy 128 and piling timber up against the hwy 1 bridge and on the beach. That's the time when idiot kayakers and rafters (like... More

Every time I see the Navarro River, crossing over it on the way to Mendocino, something inside me is deeply touched. The river is always calm, but it's a strong powerful river that is always changing color depending on the day's light. I've never seen anyone kayaking on the river but always think that it would be a perfect river... More
