Mostly a scenic float trip with multiple put-in/takeout options. Numerous low-water crossings exist along the run, and Texas Whitewater implies that at least most of these are runnable at high water, but all low-water crossings are potential hazards. Exercise extreme caution around them. Current beta is needed regarding the location of specific rapids along this stretch.
Distances and gradient measured using GIS tools in 2015.
