General Description: It is a short trip down a very steep, rocky and continuous canal and can be scouted easily from the road (recommended). A good trip if youÕre in the area, its flowing and you haven't got much time however it is fast and shallow and has seen a fair amount of damage to people and boats.
Beware the last 200m below the bridge is extremely steep, devoid of eddies and heavily overgrown with tea tree (branches at water level!). All trips should finish at the bridge.
