River Description


This is a nice run that can be added to the classic run downstream.

The bedrock rapids tend to be clustered in two's and three's seperated by long sections of II-III.  The most difficult part of the run is a short bedrock section a half mile below Little Creek that is a couple hundred yards long and requires 2-3 scouts depending on water level and comfort.  The last drop in this section (Tombstone) is a common portage.

Below this crux section there are a few more fun ledges and lots of easy boogie water. If the water is low, consider putting in at the confluence of Little Creek to avoid the upper mile.
