River Description

Very mellow run, mostly flat water with small ledges. Good putin for a couple day paddle to the snowden dam(balcony run). Lots of national forest land to camp on, and very private. One could paddle to alpine and camp overnight, then paddle to Natural Bridge(Jellystone), camp and takeout at the bottom of the balcony run. Great smallmouth on entire reach..
