The kayaks used were an Old Town Loon 120 Rec. kayak, an Old Town Dirigo 120 Rec. and a Sea Eagle SE330 Inflatable Kayak. All handled the water with ease and showed little wear at the end of the trip. If you don't have your own watercraft, the park rents out canoes and kayaks as well as provides a shuttle service that drops-off and picks-up paddlers. This fee is roughly $13 per person.
We, having done this section before, chose not to utilize the shuttle service and instead brought two vehicles. We parked one at the ending point and drove the other to the public access point where we put-in and began our adventure.
Due to heavy rains for most of the previous month, the river was high and moving quite fast. The depth varied from anywhere between 5-7 inches to 5-6 feet in depth and the current maintained about a 2-3mph pace. With some shallow areas, obviously came large rocks protruding from the surface that must be avoided. All-in-all though, the water was easily paddled.
Footage taped from my GoPro camera, shows that the trip took us roughly 2 hours to complete (2 hours, 16min.) This time was attained with minimal effort as we leisurely paddled and just sat back to enjoy the scenery.
Danville being only a few miles away, also has many restaurants and hotels that can be used if necessary.
