Likely much less paddled than the upper reach due to relatively lesser scenery (no dells), but still containing fine low-igrade rapids.
It appears there is a minor rock dam at this point, which (at some flows) may create minor wave/hole and some play potential.
There is a somewhat lengthy/extended area of rock garden in the river. Much of this may be not so much a 'rapids' as just a rock-dodge in current.
There is some sort of bridge or other structure (visible on satellite/aerial views) across the river here. It is unknown (by us, at this time) whether this allows adequate clearance at likely boatable flows.
'Little Falls' is marked on maps near here (and I believe this community takes that name). Little Falls is merely a minor rock-dam hiding under a footbridge. (Maybe barely almost class II under some ideal conditions.) Almost immediately downstream (just around a bend) there's a wealth of boulders to thread through.
The boulder garden (which started in Little Falls) continues on and off to this bridge and nearly 0.2 mile beyond (until you reach a large island).
Just before Kretchner Road, a very brief minor rock garden is encountered.
After a long flatwater stretch, some welcome boulderbed resumes (just after a horseshoe bend).
As you encounter a little 'S' turn, minor boulder bed crops up again.
It appears there may be a low water drive through (a ford) of the stream at this point, which may create some minor waves. The bouldergarden continues on and off as well.
