This short section of river offers unique basalt boulders in the riverbed and a few rapids. The river splits into two channels before crossing under Pleasant Valley Rd. The left fork has more interesting whitewater. The right fork has the largest rapid of the run just before the take out.
Flows: 300-600 (600 is optimum).
Season: year round.
