River Description

Another play run below Round Rock, which can be combined with the stretch from Veterans Park Dam to CR 122 for a total of 8 miles.  Texas Whitewater describes some "small ledge drops" and "nice waves."  More specific beta needed.

Distances and gradient measured using GIS tools in 2015.


The ledge below CR 122 and Dave's Rock below 685 change character with very little change in water level.  6 inches is a big change for these features, and they need to be scouted before playing.  Both features are great play spots at various levels but can also change quickly.
