Most of this run can be scouted from the road. The river is characterized by swiftly moving water and fairly continuous activity in moderate-size waves amid numerous rocks and other obstacles. None of the rapids is difficult, though in several spots large holes and bigger waves are encountered. Snags are a hazard at times, and it is not unusual to encounter a tree spanning all or most of the stream. Just beyond the second bridge, a rocky ledge spans 80 percent of the river, creating a very narrow chute along the right bank. At lower water levels, this chute is virtually the only runnable spot. You may readily get slammed into the wall on the right by the force of the current. It is a potentialspot for lodged debris. Character: forested.
