Just north of Mill Creek, this run is right outside Lowville. This may or may not have ever been run.
As you drive to the put in look under the Boshart Rd bridge at the first drop. You may decide to walk it. A gorge follows before the river goes under Boshart Rd and Pattern Road. Be on the lookout for barbed wire across the river. Be ready to portage (or snip it in an emergency.)
The rest of the river to the take out is unexplored. If you run it please post a description.
