River Description

Likely much less paddled than the upper reach due to relatively lesser scenery (no dells), but still containing fine low-igrade rapids.

Rapid Descriptions

Rock Dam

Class - N/A Mile - 0.44
Rapid Thumbnail Missing

It appears there is a minor rock dam at this point, which (at some flows) may create minor wave/hole and some play potential.

Minor rock garden

Class - N/A Mile - 0.8
Rapid Thumbnail Missing

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.


Class - N/A Mile - 1.24
Rapid Thumbnail Missing

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

Class - II Mile - 1.35

'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.


Class - N/A Mile - 1.63

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).

Brief minor rock garden

Class - N/A Mile - 4.2
Rapid Thumbnail Missing

Just before Kretchner Road, a very brief minor rock garden is encountered.

Boulder bed

Class - N/A Mile - 5.04
Rapid Thumbnail Missing

After a long flatwater stretch, some welcome boulderbed resumes (just after a horseshoe bend).

Boulder bed

Class - N/A Mile - 6.27
Rapid Thumbnail Missing

As you encounter a little 'S' turn, minor boulder bed crops up again.


Class - N/A Mile - 6.48
Rapid Thumbnail Missing

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.
