#4 Ketza River, and Ketza Valley.  

This is a very scenic mountain valley that has a poor none-maintained road that parallels the river for most of its length. These offer the opportunity to canoe or kayak down stream and get picked up along the road at the end of the day.

As there are two abandoned, and one closed gold mine at the head of the river, this would be a good place to try gold panning. This valley also contains an old silver mine. Good opportunities exist for hiking, climbing, and mountain biking.
