Good intro to creeking. Some cool boulder drops. Mostly bedrock rapids. One ten foot waterfall about 2/3s of the way down. A nice 4 stage waterfall right above the takeout. There is an old logging road down the river right side, making for easy portages.
The takeout is at the parking area where the pinch creek enters Glade Creek or continue on for another 7 miles of similiar whitewater.
