Merced River Recreation Management Area


Beginning in the high country of Yosemite National Park, the Merced River makes a headlong rush through glacially-carved canyons, rugged mountains and foothills to the San Joaquin Valley. Ample access points allow you to float rapids at your own pace. Come ashore long enough to watch an eagle dive for its dinner. Hook a trout and plunk it in a pan over an open fire at Railroad Flat or McCabe Flat campgrounds.


From Merced located on U.S. Highway 99, travel 40 miles east on State Highway 140 to Mariposa. Then travel another 15 miles on Highway 140 to the Briceburg Visitor Center.

November's Featured Park
The North Cascades have long been known as the North American Alps. Characterized by rugged beauty, this steep mountain range is filled with jagged peaks, deep valleys, cascading waterfalls and glaciers. North Cascades National Park Service Complex contains the heart of this mountainous region in three park units which are all managed as one and include North Cascades National Park, Ross Lake and Lake Chelan National Recreation Areas.
November's Animal
Badgers are animals of open country. Their oval burrows (ten inches across and four to six inches high) are familiar features of grasslands on sandy or loamy soils of the eastern plains or shrub country in mountain parks or western valleys.
