River Description

Small stream that takes a more leisurely descent than the others in this area. Best gradient is concentrated in the three miles below the Major Road ford. Though this stream is not rated particularly high, swift current, limited eddies, and periodic trees blocking passage deserve caution. Alternate take-out at the end of Sicotte Road eliminates 2.8 miles of lower gradient paddling though the land here is privately held.
