River Description

This reach has a lot of gradient and flow coming from a large drainage. Starting with a more active section in Greenwich below the dam this mellows out to a classic beginner run before the creek ends. A classic run which deserves more attention as Squires said.

There are dams and ledge drops that have to be portaged, but who knows, maybe this will keep advanced boaters teaching beginners something cool to make their day better.
