With medium to high water, this stretch fills with waves, souse holes and many play spots; it is suitable only for experienced paddlers. If you paddle an open canoe, stuff it with plenty of flotation to make it easier to fish from the river. You could paddle straight through in much less than the 4 - 6 hours allotted, but you'll want to scout rapids and explore play spots. Sandstone cliffs have been severely undercut by the river. Several inexperienced paddlers, not realizing the dangers, have died on this stretch.
