This reach contains big rocks, big slides, and big holes. Big fun for the right boaters at the right levels, but awesome and scary to all others. While there are no big vertical falls, the action is nonetheless, well, BIG! Note: The big slide upstream (and visible from) Hwy 61 terminates in pothole. The only known attempted run resulted in broken bones.
A USGS sampling site at this location lists drainage of 126 square miles (ranking this fourth-largest among the North Shore rivers with USGS information).
Visual, at highway 61 bridge. Highly recommended to hike up (river left) to inspect all falls in last mile.
Permits are not required for this reach.
