River Description

This is a nice class II-III+ run with a fairly constant gradient. The bigger rapids are all scoutable from the road on your drive up to the putin. While scouting look for strainers. Also watch out for logs broached on large rocks.

Putin: The bridge about 1/2 mile above Beech Lick Run - or further upstream if you so desire.

Takeout: The bridge in front of the Richwood School (behind the plaza in town).
