This is a great run for IKs and kayaks, and it's an excellent run for self-supported overnight
trips. The first 4 miles are class III-IV. You can boat scout everything up to Big Creek Gorge -
when you see a big gravel bar on the left and a headwall on the right curving hard left, pull
over and scout left. Big Creek Gorge consists of several large boulders with very tight slots
that can easily hold logs. Kayaks can run this in sections and portage as needed. Rafts will have
a significantly harder portage, so pack light and leave lots of time.
Below Big Creek Gorge, the rapids calm down significantly. You may want to combine this with the
run down to the reservoir. There are several nice rapids and great views of waterfalls.
