Starting at the putin are a nice series of Class 4/4+ ledges. The last 2 drops have more significant holes so beware at high water. Class 2 rapids lead to a small flat section before another series of rapids before a bridge. You can take out here at the Roberts Road Bridge or there are more drops if you continue to the Black River confluence.
Taking out if you continue to the Black may be tricky. From the Roberts Bridge head west at bear left on the fork. There appears to be a small dirt access road that may have access to the Black. If not continue on, turn right onto Lake Julia and try to get access off Peter Point Road.
Always be on the lookout for strainers.
