Length is 5 miles,

younger children, or those who want to arrive later for more leisurely
day. Very scenic with a little less current, yet plenty of wildlife and
places to swim and play. The last mile and a half of this section is
backed up by the Memorial Beach Dam, so expect a less current and a
little more time at the end of your run. The trip ends at Riverís Edge
Beach...where there is an attendant and various services for your
convenience. Class I + current.

The Alex trip
is 11 or 16 miles with a paddle time of 4-6 hours. This trip is on a
remote section of the river that is not easily accessible. Therefore,
you will experience 11 miles of unspoiled wilderness with an abundance
of wildlife including a pair of nesting bald eagles. This is
considered a nature trip, not a party run.
This trip is not for beginners, small children the physically
challenged. You will be negotiating and navigating through current and
around obstacles in some places. You and your party will need to have
basic boat control skills. Summer and Fall is a little less challenging
than spring flow but still somewhat technical in a few places. You need
to have the agility and ability to self rescue, including a wedged or
"wrapped" boat. There is the potential to flip or wrap. If you lose your
paddle or wrap your boat there is no public access for us to assist you
unless there is a medical emergency.
is not for beginners, small children or the physically challenged. You
will be navigating and negotiating around obstacles and through current.
You and your party will need basic boat control skills in almost class
II water. That means everyone has had experience in moving water, with
tight turns in boat eating log jams. Everyone must have a basic
understanding of hydrology and how even mild current can be unsafe.
There is a potential to flip and wrap your boat, so you will need the
ability and agility to self rescue, including a wedged or wrapped boat.
If you lose a paddle or your boats, there is no public access for us to
assist you unless there is a medical emergency.
