River Description

This Class I-II section of the East Fork of the Little Miami River offers an alternative to the Little Miami or Great Miami Rivers.  There are a fair number of islands to maneuver around and a half dozen or so Class I-II rapids. There are several spots to surf and spin at moderate and low flows (most of which are catch-on-the-fly) and lots of eddies to catch on either side of the river. Ferrying across swift current is also another way to amuse yourself.  At moderate flows (3.3 feet), the small wave trains after the rapids are deep enough for wave wheel practice.

There are no real hazards to speak of except strainers, which are easily avoided due to the width of the river.  If you feel comfortable on the Little Miami, this is within your range.

The real selling point of this river is the scenery. Because the river lies almost entirely within East Fork State Park, there are few signs of civilization on the river.  You will probably be the only person on the river.
