RATING SYSTEM

While large rapids of Class III and above are typically only found during floods the water still contains risks some hidden even at normal heights. Strainers which like their name only allow water to pass through and are a risk. Each trip is rated from "Easy Peazy" to eat your "Wheaties" When choosing a trip remember to stay in your lane and if in doubt "Scout it Out".
