This section is suitable for beginners with ample parking at each end for a big group. In the summer months there is not much current for most of the trip, so it could be paddled in reverse with minimal effort and walking a few sections. There are two short easy rapids midway through the section. Normally these are nothing more than a few ripples and good eddies for ferryglide practice, but a sizeable wavetrain forms in high water.
