There is a section of this that is an honest to god whitewater run under the right conditions. Unfortunately, it runs out into a lake that drowns another 30 feet of gradient.
The gauge is at the putin. The top part of this run is very creeky. Two miles down from the putin is a bridge with 4 foot culverts that needs to be treated with caution.
The run picks up after the alternate putin about halfway down. The next section runs through a gorge. Just as things start to get interesting, the lake intervenes. After your boring flatwater paddle, portage down the left side of the spillway. A short uninteresting section takes you down to Rt. 1
