  Fun Facts

Classic beginner run

   Run Description

This is where lots of Seattle kayakers have their first swims. Easy rapids and a couple of easy playspots, and some good eddies for practicing that roll.

Can be run higher than the listed flows, but more moderate flows are better for the beginners (and for rescuing them).

On hot days watch out for Darwin award contestants in innertubes tempting fate with the logs.
