General Description: To the best of our knowledge, this section of river has not been canoed. Descriptions of other rivers in the area suggest that it could be a good trip. Allow plenty of time for a first descent. Beware of logs. Caution as river can rise fast, high, without warning. This includes cars left at start and finish.
