Grading System

Class 1

Easy: Moving water with occasional small rapids. Few or no obstacles.

Class 2

Moderate: Small Rapids with regular waves. Some maneuvering required but easy to navigate.

Class 3

Difficult: Rapids with irregular waves and hazards that need avoiding. More difficult maneuvering required but routes are normally obvious. Scouting from shore is occasionally required.

Class 4
