Difficulty & Must Have:
This paddle is approximately 11.5 miles long and takes around 5.5 hours from Atison Lake to the take-out at Pleasant Mills. There are many tight turns, and good boat control is important. Boats 12 feet or less are recommended. There are a number of Beaver Dams that will need to be navigated as well as the usual strainers and snags.
A shuttle is required and club Mask rules will apply.
