very easy beginner section with good scenery. Good for kids and first time paddlers. You can shorten this section by putting in along Rt 3 which runs along the river.
you need at least 400 cfs to get downthis section. 4000 cfs is a complete guess on the upper limit.
Permits are not required for this reach.
all on rt 3..you can see most of the run from the road
