The put in is on private property. They charge $3, but this is a wonderful take out with an easy carry on a boat ramp. This section is virtually flat. At low water, there are a number of small class 1 rapids. The are several deadfalls to avoid. It is a lovely, mostly natural section with only one well hidden house, high on the left bank.
