River Description

Small creek. pretty continuous class 3 to 4 with frequent strainers due to its size. If it looks good to go at the put in, it is. No large individual drops, but a few small stairstep drops with 2-4 closely spaced 2 ft. drops. At high water, some bridges might get low (limbo time!)

Satellite photos suggest a larger drop about a mile upstream, upstream of Stephens Mill Rd. (to run that section, it looks like you could put in at Flander's - Drakestown Rd.)
