According to Ed Gertler's "Garden State Canoeing" this section requires about 6.5 feet on the High Bridge Gauge (check USGS Website) and he is right. We had only 6.2 feet on the gauge and our 11' kayaks scraped bottom a lot.
Luckily, this level was sufficient for fun, in spite of pushing ourselves over obstacles in some of the shallower rock gardens. At 6.5 feet I think this section would rate about 2.5-3.0 for difficulty, but there is ample opportunity to escape the river and a road parallels the entire course.
I'm looking forward to a big summer rain, look for my next report.
