River Description

In 2009 a group of paddlers attempted to paddle the section from Riverbend Campground to Schaefer Lake trail. The group reported numerous log jams, many without a good place to take out and without a way to portage without going thru thick brush and over fallen trees.

We attempted to paddle this stretch on June 24, 2009. We put in at Riverbend Campground and took
out at the Schaefer Lake trail. Schaefer Creek is too far from the road to be a feasible put-in.
There were numerous log jams, many without a good place to take out and without a way to portage
without going thru thick brush and over fallen trees. In 4 and a half hours, we did about 2 miles.
Jim Greenleaf says that his name was attached to this section by mistake.
