Rapid Descriptions

Rapid (Class III, Mile 7.6)

The only significant rapid (Janet's?) is just downstream of
the old train trestle (bridge) downstream from Wolcott. There are signs directing you to scout from
river right. The run is through the right side of the bridge (right of the pylon in the middle) and
then a move to the left after the bridge to avoid a rock wall and then a hole on the right.

We ran this section 3 June 2012 at about 1000 cfs in a 14' raft. It was our maiden voyage and we
only had two paddlers and it was a perfect water level for us. We got hung up on a few rocks that
we didn't see, but other than that it was great. The only significant rapid (Janet's?) is just
