#Please respect the local land owners, I have worked hard to keep good relations w/ them, and I want them to welcome kayakers.
A great beginner first river or teaching river.
90% of this is flat water, great for a beginner to work on boat control in.
The other 10% is a class II drop pool, w/ the majority near the take-out.
Beautiful Adk scenery, a few looks at a cabin or two. You have the feel of being far from any road during this paddle. Very enjoyable in that respect.
