Water moves fast on most of this section. Should be able to complete paddling in about 3 hours.
For experienced paddlers only. There are several sections of class I-II+ rapids on this stretch of river, depending on water levels. The toughest section is right at the put in, and it can be avoided by carrying boats down a path which leads to a put-in spot below the rapids.
This section is part of the Northern Forest Canoe Trail, and a detailed description of it is available in their guidebook.
