River Description

Claimed as a possible first descent by Stephen Hunt and Chris Polzin on January 19, 2001. He says the Caney Fork was over the top of the gage (maybe 3.5-4.0 feet).

Stephen further says:

Hazards: The first Major Rapid looks innocuous from upstream, but scouting reveals a downed tree toward the bottom jammed into an undercut that blocks most of the creek and would likely be terminal if blundered into. We'll probably try to remove it this summer (NOT the undercut).
