  Fun Facts

Good begginer run if clear of wood.

   Run Description

This run starts either above of below the first rapid, Blue Hole. The pool at the bottom of Blue Hole is the perfect spot for those brand new to kayaking to practice eddy turns and paddling in a current. There is some surf potential at this spot with ok eddy access. The exciting rapids are in the first third of this run with nothing exceeding the difficulty of the optional first rapid. Lots of flatwater untill the takeout.
