Put-in is at CTH.W, at roughly 1370' elevation.
Take-out is at Skinner Creek Landing, at roughly 1293' elevation.
Rapids include Carpenters, Cornsheller, Big Bull, Bergeron, Little Falls, Scratch, and Otter Slide.
Many paddlers opt for a short trip, putting in at CTH.M, to focus on the 'main event', Little Falls.
'MnktoDave' has put together a beautiful video from Little Falls on this stretch of river:
|Mile||Rapid Name||Class||Features (Legend)|
|0.0||Put-in: Drainage area: ~615 sq.mi.||N/A|
For continuity, and since there are named rapids between here and CTH.M, we list this as the put-in, even though many paddlers (intent only on the best whitewater) just put in at CTH.M.
Drainage at this listed put-in is ~615 square miles. By CTH.M, it has increased to ~661 square miles, and at our listed take-out (not counting Skinner Creek's contribution) it is ~666 square miles (an increase of ~8% from listed put-in to listed take-out).
Often used as an put-in for a shorter run with (perhaps) the best rapids.
Below is a YouTube video of some folks running each side of this falls.
