This run can be paddled by itself or as an alternative start to the Lower
Tilton run downstream (beware that at flows lower than 2500 cfs the
flatwater paddle between sections feels a little long). It's a short run, but
provides nearly continuous action.
See Jason Hummel's
North Fork Tilton trip report on then Cascade Classics web site.
Lat/Long are very approximate.
Visual. Look for flows of 400-500
cfs. Best when the Tilton gauge is
between 2500 and 3200 cfs, but can
be paddled as low as 1500 cfs.
Permits are not required for this reach.
We have no additional detail on this route.
