Ed Evangelidi testifies:
Pretty narrow at the upper reaches but the rapids sort of have a similar character to them from top to bottom. The upper rapids have downed trees that change location from flood to flood and more low-water bridges to walk around, but the scenery is more like a mountain stream here. Basically you have a mix of rocky route rapids and wavey rapids and the spacing between rapids (and low water bridges) eases up below Rte. 42. One high dam in the lower section can be run with proper precautions. Hopefully your precautions taken before you try running it will include spotting the rebar lurking around. There are other low-water dams throughout the run that can cause problems if you lack speed or boat control.
You need 4.5 to start at the top, but only 3.2 for the final 8 miles.
Permits are not required for this reach.
