This is a great class IV+ to V run. To reach the put in, drive up the first fork road just East
of where highway 160 crosses the river. The takeout is up this road also, just before the road
leaves the river. If the gate is closed, you will have to run the upper section as well and do
the long shuttle thing.
This run changed due to the flooding of 2005, and now the 2nd mudslide rock has 'opened up' a bit
to make it slightly easier. Always scout this and consider portage or lining on the right and
watch for wood!
