Access: Hike in, starting at the DEC sign on Rte. 8 for Eleventh Mt. Trailhead Parking (1.5 miles).
Takeout 2 miles south on Route 8. Place a marker in a tree at the takeout so you can find it.
Description: Run starts with some flatwater and a couple of nice ledge drops before dropping into the gorge. The rapids in the gorge are sweet and it's beautiful in there. Some have wood catching potential and one has a decent hole at the bottom. This is a great run, you just have to hike for your turns on this one.
