River Description

Steep, Lots of Wood, Big Slides, Lots of Wood, Really BIG Slide, and a Lot more Wood.
This run isn't really worth driving for unless you are within a 30 minute radius due to the limited nature of its watershed. If you happen to be in the area during what local residents refer to as a "frog drowner" and you can find this one in time, you will be rewarded ever so sweet with some nice boating a` la bedrock gorge. 
Stay Tuned for pics and more info.

If you do happen across this gem, please be discreet and courteous to any of the folks you might encounter. They aren't quite used to seeing us do what we do.
Lat/longitude coords are a rough estimate. Scout for a good idea of where to putin/takeout.
