A self-supported trip created by Tharb5111

Trip Overview

Aborted trip. River blocked in both directions. Huge fallen trees block river to right and left of our put in at canoe launch pad in both directions. 1/4 mile paddle with a portage around small trees and shallows leads to completely blocked river in either north or southbound on river. Portage not possible here. 10 foot mud embankments make portage impossible without climbing gear and huge efforts. Skip this one. And worse parking one car is 28 dollars (family of four, 7 dollars per person).

Safety Notes

Huge trees blocks north and southbound approaches 1/4 mile down steam in both directions.

Gear Notes

Packrafts only. Or light kayaks. Canoes too heavy here.

Conditions

Poor. Muddy water. 10 foot mud embankment make portage around deadfall and shallows improbable.

Portage Notes

Low water south bound from put in. Shallow mud ankle deep.
