The Big Piney
Upper Saint Francis River
My God what a fun river! It's 3 miles of river with absolutely NO FLAT WATER! NONE! ZERO!
You put on 50 yards before the rapids and take off immediately below the end of the whitewater.
It's mostly class III with one class IV and some II's at the end. It's literally a 3 mile boulder garden.
This is definitely one you don't want to miss.
