Do you know of any other runs in Souther Michigan? I will be home for a week/couple weeks in July and would bring my raft if there is anything worth running.
I believe it's Class II-III depending on the water level. It's pretty fast and narrow with infrequent eddies. I found it to be very committing. Check the comments here for other paddlers opinions: http://americanwhitewater.org/content/R ... l/id/4330/
Hopefully they get some decent rainfall before you arrive. I wouldn't run it below 1.4 feet. You can check the level here: http://twitter.com/#!/GaugeLevel
I haven't found any other true WW runs in the lower peninsula. Hoping and waiting on the Grand Rapids Whitewater park to be developed.
