The river during summer is not difficult, with some shallow spots, but no rapids, with about a 2 mph current. The water level was adequate for kayaks, but would have been more challenging for canoes, as a number of rock shelves and boulders could have grounded most canoes.
I used the local outfitter, Yadkin River Adventures (http://www.yadkinriveradventures.com/) and found them to be excellent. The owner, Paul, was very easy to work with and the hot dogs at the general store were the best.
I would recommend this trip, or the longer 8 mile full day trip, for anyone looking for peace and quiet and a lovely little slow river.
