Powerline

Class - II Mile - 0
Rapid Thumbnail Missing

Right as you come to a clearing for a powerline, a bedrock drop is encountered. Inexperienced (whitewater beginner/novice) boaters may wish to scout, easily done river-right. While this is perhaps the 'toughest' drop on this run, generally it should be a failrly straight-forward drop.
