The river has several drops consisting of 1 to 2 foot drops. Lots of bends as the river winds down through the foothills. The river offers every thing from rapids to flats to swimming holes, and fishing. The river winds through Garner St. Park, wildlife is everywhere. Every thing from birds(hawks,eagles ext..deer,turkeys,lizards.) at times the river can have many people (family groups, partiers,) floating in tubes. NO GLASS CONTAINERS ALLOWED ON RIVER!!!! CANS OR OK....
The Frio River is much like the Guadalupe river but not as cold and the water is much clearer (you can see everything in the water.) There are a lot more rapids on the Frio River.
Overall the Frio River is the best river between the three rivers (Guadalupe,Sabinal,and the frio, or the Nueces River). I haven't been there yet but they say the Nueces is dry. Overall the river is good for beginners and novice yak'ers, except when the river is high....judge yourself!
