This run is enhanced in its upper end by numerous small play holes and waves, which are derived from the wide, shallow, and ledgy character of its sandstone bedding. At moderate levels, only two significant rapids interrupt the run’s class 3 serenity. Both can be scouted by car, although the road does not parallel most of the river. Flowing beneath a canopy of maple, cedar, fir, and aromatic myrtle, the river attracts many new sweepers annually. Character: canyon; forested.
