There is a short Class III set of chutes near the gauge. Much of the rest of this long run is rather tame but pretty. Picks up speed again when it makes its final drop to the Susquehanna.

Ed Evangelidi testifies:
The Class 3 rapids at Rocks may be negotiated down below 150 CFS, as it is quite constricted.
