Fairly continuous class II (+/-) water.
This might actually make a better starting point, cutting off 1.35 miles of flat/flowing/tripping water (maybe a few riffles but no real rapids). We leave the section description as listed only for 'continuity' with the upstream listed section of this river, but parenthetically indicate mileage deduction distance to here.
(0.35 down from TRC)
(0.7 down from TRC)
A pretty fair sized island splits the flow almost evenly. Left may be slightly more water and ever so slightly shorter/preferable. (No rapids to either side.)
(0.95 mile downstream from TRC)
(3.1 miles downstream from TRC)
Pancake Creek enters from river-right, as the light boulder-bed rapids continue!
(4.1 miles downstream from TRC)
The river takes a hard-right just as it encounters the head of an island. Boulderbed rapids continue, but diminish considerably not far downstream.
(5.25 miles downstream from TRC)
A few random relatively smaller islands precede this spot. As the river bears to the right, a very small channel (likely blocked by wood) splits to the left around a rather larger island. Scattered light rapids continue.
(6.65 miles downstream from TRC)
Six Mile Creek enters from river-left, signaling that the take-out for this run is just downstream.
Visual inspection. If rapids along Sawbill Trail (Hwy.2) look reasonable, the run should be fine.
Permits are not required for this reach.

American Whitewater. Don't worry about multiple submissions from other witnesses, as our safety
editors will turn multiple witness reports into a single unified accident report.
