River Description

Put in at the Foresport Dam.  From here there will be a few optional class II-III slides before the river run starts. The river quickly settles into a scenic class II with a few II+ moves where it goes over a small ledge.

There is the option of running the river all the way to Hawkinsville as it flattens into a mellow flatwater run or taking out at the power house on Canal Rd to lap the best whitewater.
