River Description

This section should not be confused with the fun whitewater run through the park downstream.  There are some rapids at the put in and a ledge or two during the run but most of this is a moving water paddleout.

Has this section been confused with the well-known class 1-2 run from hwy 213 down to Factory
Shoals Road? The section between 81 and 278 is known mainly for its swampy sections. I have never
heard of rapids from those who have run this section, and on going over the topos and satellite
photos, I see no indication of the kind of gradient that would produce class 2-3 rapids. Mainly
evident on the satellite photos are many, many downed trees. I think we should get the hwy 213 to
Factory Shoals run on the list and remove this one.
