This first trip from the Dam to the River Road Landing runs the gamut from narrow but passable (be prepared for beaver dams and deadfalls) through twists and turns (may need to walk through a stretch of low hazard rapids) to broad floodplain with occasional oxbows and moderately fast current. There are some portages (by the dam, across the road, and some beaver dams). There are also several landings suitable for take-out or put-in. There are also two campsites (one night only) along the route.
