River Description


This 3 mile section has a great mix of easy class II rapids and scenery with a few deep holes for swimming or fishing. Towards the end is a long shoals, just above the take-out bridge. This shoals requires some maneuvering and approaches class III in difficulty. The trickiest part, especially at lower water levels, is not getting stuck on rocks at the bottom of the shoals. On river left it is possible to hike up from Whitehall Road to scout the shoals.

Below the bridge a pipe crosses the river, which can clothes-line and capsize unwary boaters at certain levels.
