Just below the bridge were some class three rapids, so we decide to walk around those and put in below them. That took about 30 min. to carry all the kayaks past them. Them we encountered many more smaller class 2 and 3 rapids that were a lot of fun, but you will get stuck a lot on the rocks. We all flipped over many times.
I would not recommend this trip for children under 12 unless there very experienced with a kayak. After about 2 hours of rapids and getting stuck on rocks we finally hit a little calmer water. There's a lot of beautiful scenery including some huge rock walls.
All in all the trip was good, but make sure to put in early. We did not make it to Kelly Bridge until 8:30 pm. It was almost dark and my son did not like that. Total trip time is 6 1/2 to 7 hrs.
The get to point is located off of Kelly Bridge Rd. Just follow 53 further west to Handy Corners gas station turn left at the station follow that road to the stop sign that will be Kelly Bridge Rd. Turn left; the bridge is about 4 miles. There's a great place to park there for just 3$ parking.
