The action starts about a half mile into the run. The first horizon line will signify a slot
rapid on river left. Around half way through the trip rapids of difficulty will become more
frequent. Scouting may be necessery at a few blind drops. One rapid is a 10ft ledge off the left
side into a big pool. The right line drops off into a nasty boulder sieve. Once you come to rebar
and an old dam, the gradient picks up again droping around 50 ft in a few hundred yards creating
some nice drops to end the run.
As with all small watersheds watch out for wood on this one.
