I ran this section late March 2014 and the cable under the Eagle Mills bridge was no longer there. I ran it when the gauge was around 10ft and all the rapids were around class III-IV. There is one waterfall about a half mile after the second bridge that was completely unrunnable at this level and at lower levels it is runnable but would be rated V+ due to the most of the water pounds into a rock at the bottom.

i paddle this run a lot. theres actually a put in above eagle mills its off of garfield rd by the wagner farm. there are a few good class II and III rapids. With the new bridge they put in at eagle mills (finished in late 2007) they left a wire low to the water. i havent run it to see if you can go under it but its there.

Hello, I was driving and found this river, I dont know what stretch this was but IT IS RUNNABLE. There is 4 major drops, all waterfall/slides unrunnalbe at lower levals, which is how they where when i saw them, BUT at higher water they seem to be good. There is one man made waterfall, its a 35 foot steep slide to a 8 foot auto boof waterfall. This is runnable at low levels. That was the only one I ran, this was on 4/27/08. anyone want to paddle this run,
