I ran this run from the Ice Caves bridge at Big Four down to the gravel bar at the bridge. Starting
at Deer Creek is a better idea, just to avoid the worst logjams at low water.

This run is steep, and filled with logjams, but the logjams just move the water into another
channel, so if you are careful, you never have to portage. Despite the steepness, the rapids are
all class II with a few II+ rapids. It's very strange to have such a steep river without bigger
rapids.

This run can be combined with the run down to Verlot, but remember: When this run has enough water
to make it exciting, the run below it becomes closer to class IV, especially in the long rapids in
the middle of the run.
