Consistent rapids will keep your attention the entire trip. After a fun warm-up section of unnamed class III rapids, you will drop into Nomad rapid then immediately finding yourself in Fall River rapid.

This trip is for people looking for excitement and adventure and will keep your attention the entire time.
