River Description

Stephen Strange shared:
We had a lot of fun on this run. It has a lot of flat water, but then has some BIG drops.

To avoid the flat water the reccomended run is the bridge in Fine to the bridge in South Edwards. Click the Map tab to see the full extent of the run.

Be sure to scout when you get to the rapids below the dam before South Edwards. Squires notes both fun drops and surf waves throughout this run.
