There is a gentle current, that will vary with the amount of water, making the trip seem shorter than 13 or so miles. Also, depending upon the amount of water, there was some obstructions along the shore. At the moment, the water was higher than average. There were places that we scrapped bottom and places where the water was moving swiftly enough to give you a thrill. We stopped for a break along the way to eat a bit of lunch and take a break from sitting. Because of some obstruction from the spring run off and the heavy rains there were a couple of turn overs. Everyone was fine and help in retreaving the boats and paddles was all that was necessary. Everyone was happy when we arrived at the take out point and were talking about the next paddle. Isn't that the reason that we do it? The fun, the exercise, the time outdoors, and the planning of the next trip!
This is a fun trip and I would do this again. There is also more to paddle downstream that we will be doing sometime soon. Some land on the way is posted so be aware of that. Some land is not posted and stopping is allowed.
