River Description

This stretch is pretty and is a good scenic beginners float.
To start at the dam, bushwack through alot of reeds, and right after you get through the brush, river-center there is a one-shot, green, steep, wave that you can throw air-blunts on. Its flat from there on out and then there is a hole during the middle of the run. You can drive along the river-right hand side of the river, but it is a major off-road trail, and TONS of sand. So if you've got a tight truck, you might be able to park and play there, otherwise don't bother. The hole/spillover comes in over 1000cfs.
AZ ELF Boaters, get out there if you can because it is probably the best, and closest thing you've got!

Dubbed "Grace of God Dam". See:  HUCKIN HUGE
