  Other Issues

Sharp blast rock and some pin potential at the lower flows. Stay in the middle of the river and work from there. This is a "hey diddle diddle" type of run!

  Fun Facts

Warm water, roadside, runs in late summer when everything else is dry. Labor day weekend brings boaters from all over the US to its waters.

   Run Description [Season: Summer]

This run is the shit! The bottom five miles are the easiest. Start with this section before venturing upstream. With the exception of Nutcracker and Jacobs Ladder, most people read and run the entire thing, as there is no way to memorize all the routes. Go with someone who knows the run your first time down, or be prepared to shoot from the hip for 15 miles!
