Beautiful, remote-feeling setting with exciting rapids for kayaks, paddle rafts and small oar rigs. A mostly class III run not to be taken lightly. Very cold water, continous rapids around blind curves, steep banks, undercut rocks and downed trees present many hazards. Large boulders in the main channel require quick manuevering to avoid holes and getting pinned. Scout as much as possible from the road that parallels and gives some glimpses. Takeout is a small eddy with a steep bank alongside the last pullout on Hwy 133 before turning to Marble. Look for alternate takeouts downstream in case the first one is missed.
Suggested river levels for paddling this section of the Crystal River are between a bare minimum of 500cfs and a high of 2,000cfs.
