At high water, above 8 feet, the run provides a fun day of class 3 hole crashing. The first part of the run provides bouncy class 2+ rapids. At mile 1.5, Powerdale Dam requires a portage. Pull to the left shore the moment the dam comes into view and carry boats along the left bank. Below the dam, the river accelerates to class 2+ to 3 boulder gardens, occasional islands, and debris for the next mile, forcing quick decision making. The next obstacle is a dogleg turn just beyond an orange railroad bridge. This requires a hard pull to the right bank to avoid a large boulder on river left. The remainder of the run is fast but flat. The takeout is at the footbridge located at the west end of the Hood River Marina. Character: forested.
