Evacuation routes

From Highway 20 put-in, a 4WD trail runs along river right along the 2 miles of the North Fork of Cache Creek until the confluence with the main stem of Cache Creek. At the confluence, the 4WD trail jumps across the river to river right of the main stem, and runs for 3 miles through Wilson Valley.

Thereafter Cache Creek flows through a wilderness area, where the best exit is to follow the river bank to the takeout or the put-in.
