  Fun Facts

This run is nice to combine with the "upper" section to make a 12 mile run. It is recommmended to run it at higher flows to facillitate a fairly expedient trip with all of the gravel bars covered. You'll probably see some eagles and great blue heron.


   Run Description

Below 6 mile bridge, it barely gets more difficult than class III- so consider it a class II+ run overall. Very scenic. Mostly the standard gravel bar/braided channel character, with one short beautiful class II canyon. This canyon may have a few nice play waves at the right levels.

You probably want current for this run, so higher flows are best. beware to pick the proper channels around the islands, though, and always watch out for wood.

When you get down to where the houses and cottages are, there is one obvious spot that will make you drool if you own a squirt boat and know how to use it.

A great run to take beginners on. Paddle all the way out onto Hood Canal. It's cool.
