Starting in Dickinson Center the run is Class 2/2+ After passing under Route 11b it builds to Class 2/3.

The Route 11b Bridge can be used as an alternate access to cut the run in half.


It is possible to continue to North Lawrenceville, however the river widens and drops to Class 2 at best.

Went last weekend (4/27/19), this is definitely not a class II/III section, more like class III+ maybe IV. Pretty continuous, few eddy's, and lots of spring debris down.
