Like a miniature class 3+ West Prong, there is no break for the first mile, and even then it still holds a good pace. There might be 1 or 2 class 4's at low water, but higher it is class 4 continuous. Watch for wood, and that said, it is not easy to do so. Do a couple of laps.
Visual. If Big Creek and Middle Prong are both too high, then this is likely to be going. This one requires lots of rain and drops quick. Look at the creek at the Hwy 32 bridge. If it looks low, it is. If it looks high, it is.
Permits are not required for this reach.
