Mohawk River: Gate on Mohawk Road to Hileman Road Bridge Professional Review and Guide
"The Mohawk River, a tributary of the McKenzie River, drains a small valley devoted largely to logging and farming. This run is meandering, shallow, narrow, and continuous in character, and it has strainers. The river cuts through basalt for the first 2 miles and then through alluvial deposits. The first mile has several ledges, including one 4-foot ledge (class 3-) and a sloping 5-foot ledge under a bridge and into a pool.
A high waterfall cascades down to the river on the left within this first mile. Downstream the river flows quickly between easy riffles. In 1991, two large logs and two low wires spanned the river in the section between miles 3.5 and 5. At about mile 5, the river pours over a log that forms a 2-foot drop. Character: wooded; residential."
