Only runnable (if ever) when there's been a huge amount of rain. The best rain gage would probably be Bath, 8433, but it's not really in the headwaters.
The USGS maintains two flow gages. Neither is realtime, but both have recent data. We got Ghent (upstream) and Botzum (at the Cuyahoga confluence). Seems we had about 150 cfs on the day that we ran it in April, Y2K. It runs higher than that a few times a year.
Permits are not required for this reach.
We have no additional detail on this route.

If someone gets hurt on a river, or you read about a whitewater-related injury, please report it to
American Whitewater. Don't worry about multiple submissions from other witnesses, as our safety
editors will turn multiple witness reports into a single unified accident report.
Log into the American Whitewater website and you can contribute to river descriptions,
flow and access tips, and maps associated with runs you've done. You can even add new
runs to the inventory!
