Steep. Scouting and portages necessary. Numerous large and dangerous drops with some ending in
entrapment or physical destruction and/or pain. This is not for boaters who prefer placid runs
like the Upper Yough,
Big Sandy, Daugherty Run, Fike Run, etc. that are located
in nearby vicinities. Bring a friend and a rope and do some hiking. Lower section is extremely
steep and may be considered totally unrunnable by many. For those with adventuresome spirits and
very good skills it is a fun lesson in technical lines. Enjoy.
Lat/longitude coordinates are a rough approximation.
