The river cascades through 70 miles of Coastal Mountains, from an elevation of 5,906 feet at the headwaters, to its confluence with the Eel River at an elevation of 62 feet.
The Van Duzen has been federally designated as a "Wild and Scenic River", but also has been listed as "sediment impaired" under section 303(d) of the Clean Water Act.

The Van Duzen River basin is the site of redwood parks, ranches, timberlands, and residential neighborhoods.
