this is a legal run, but odnr doesn't encourage it. The dam is a good 20', kind of horse shoe shaped, and has a fairly large hydraulic at high water; it's also very deep. The only rapid on the run has a 6' drop and then a 4' drop about 50' downstream. A very pretty creek for Ohio if you can overcome the smell of sewage in the water.
My buddy ran it a few days ago and on his 3rd lap had a Ranger threaten to arrest him and give him a fine of $1500 as well as take his boats etc.
