Take out before Greenbrier. Some books say it is a short paddle back up to the main bridge;
however, if the forks are up, the current is very strong. It took me over an hour to eddy my way
back up!

13 Apr 03: Great run, but definitely need to catch it with a decent water level. If it looks like
it will float a canoe at the low water bridge on Forest Service Road 51, then it should work. Watch
out for fallen trees! There is a good camping spot at the low water bridge. Fritz Crytzer
