Beautiful run with many 2-3 rapids. You can take out about 2 miles downstream under the
bridge..There are a bunch of no trespassing signs there but there is also a sign that says 'canoe
portage only' , so I'd say its OK. That couple miles consist of class 1-2 water.

Fun run at 3 ft and above on above gauge. Runnable at 2.6 but gets very boney at 2.4. Good run is
from Buena Vista to the bottom of the Balcony run on the James, but the gauge on the Maury needs to
be at 3+ to get to the James that fast, a 16 mile paddle. Confluence Rapid at the James/Maury is
considered a III. Very rocky drop, run river right.<p>
Ed Evangelidi testifies:<br>
The rapid at the confluence with the James can be run/played in by itself without having to run the
