Number of Portages:
Tree obstructions will cause around 8 portages.
This is a long ride with no real exits unless you cross private property. Bring plenty of food/water. Cell service was good throughout the entire paddle. Expect to spend at least 8 hours going down this river at it's current flow and status. You can usually stand up in the river, but at certain tree obstruction spots the river is 6-8 feet deep. NOT a beginners river.
We used 9 and 10 foot kayaks. They will need to scrape over the trees and it's highly likely you will get wet/need to get out
