"This is a nice way to spice up a trip to the Quartzville drainage"
The section is mostly about the two rapids at the take out and put in. The section can be run lower, but the upper rapid becomes marginal at lower flows.
The rapids in between and then down to Canal Creek are mostly easy but enjoyable slides. You can continue all the way down to Quartzville via Canal Creek for additional whitewater.
