River Description

This run is a jewel. Tight and somewhat technical, it can collect wood from the
steep banks so be on your toes. There is a "must scout" section visable from the
road a short ways above the first bridge across the river. The river passes
through a "S" turn and between several large boulders that tend to gather trees.
It is easier to put in at the first bridge crossing and avoid that section
completely. Take out is at the San Juan River Village.
