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.

Cautions:

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.
