River Description

This is a nice run for novice boaters looking to try out a couple intermediate rapids mixed in with loads of class IIs and easy IIIs, or a nice place for more advanced boaters looking for a relaxed day on the water.

The whitewater is mostly class I-II+ with a sprinkling of easy IIIs and 1 class III-IV rapid near the end.  It is possible to catch a glimpse of the tougher rapid from the road during the shuttle, which can be portaged along the right bank.  

Bring a snack and enjoy the wildlife, there are nice beaches for a lunch break and small rapids are abundant.  Small surf waves present themselves here and there, a couple with good eddy service.  Take out at the bridge in Tiller, which has nice descriptions of the wildlife in the area on the upstream crosswalk.
