River Description

Texas Whitewater lists this as a hypothetical run, but it has since been run by locals.  Distances and gradient measured using GIS tools in 2015.

From the put-in to E. Frankford Road, there is some potential for play.  There are also 2 strainers to watch out for.  From E. Frankford Road to McCoy, they are reconstructing the stream bed.  They have built at least three low-head dams, with more on the way.  The first one is about 100 yards downstream of E. Frankford Road.  It has a small slide in the center.  The rest are all short vertical ledge/drops that might be playable at high levels.
