This creeky roadside run has some real drops and can be run several times in a day, when it's up. Put in at the bridge on Shaw Rd; take out at the Westfield confluence or run the Pork Barrel section.
There's one serious Class V drop which is hidden from the road. Note: the last drop of the run is in a landowner's backyard, so it's best to be low-key when running this stretch, especially if you feel like scouting or portaging.
