The run begins just below the hatchery on the East Fork of the South Fork Trask River and passes through a lightly populated valley. The gradient is steepest in the first 2 miles, with several tight twisting drops. The last of these is recognized by the remains of a log bridge hanging over the river 50 yards downstream. Scout the drops for debris. After the confluence with the North Fork at mile 2.2, the gradient lessens but still provides interesting rapids and play spots. At mile 3.5 a busy class 2 rapids on a left bend leads immediately to a class 3 ledge drop with a reversal that must be punched. Paddlers in kayaks or decked single canoes (C-1s) should not be surprised when they disappear briefly in this hole. The remaining run is enjoyable class 2 water. Character: forested; residential.
