4. Islands, Rapids and the High Banks

Along the way, you will traverse several exciting sets of rapids as well as chart a course around the string of islands that punctuate the river. As a rule, passage to the right of the islands is shallow and wide, while passage to the left, is faster and rockier.

The most challenging spot lies just past the sharp left bend of the river known as "High Banks", a Class II or III stretch of boulder strewn rapids located 4.5 miles from Riverton.

As you approach this bend, be on the lookout for a narrow stand of tall straight pines, on your left, that serve as a reminder of the turbulent chute straight ahead.
