1. "The Rocks" rapids class rating varies tremendously depending on the water level. At 54cfs a member of our party ran the rapid solo with minimal difficulty in an open canoe. It was scrapey and there were big drops but there really wasn’t any big water until the last ledge, which has a clear chute at this level.
2. After "The Rocks" there are no significant rapids, so if rapids are all you are after I suggest you choose the first bridge east of 685 as your take-out.
3. There is a cool cave/ledge on river left just downstream of route one
The rating may be a little deceiving for this, It is class 3 until you come to a place the locals call "The Rocks", class 4+ and real nasty looking Scout first by hiking down from the bridge on river right, you'll know when you come to it, looks as if it's runnable down river right and the nasty stuff can be avoided.
I parked on the bridge and walked down and scouted the rocks. Does anyone have any pictures of it running?
