River Description

Hike 3 miles of so downhill into Crystal Lake and enjoy the awesome scenery before heading downstream. Be prepared for a big portage right off the bat, followed by some scenic, quality, and remote adventure boating all the way to Lindburgh Lake. Rapids are generally drop-pool and fairly easily boat or bank scouted. Finish with a paddle across Lindburgh. High quality backcountry boating.
