in North West
The harder rapids are all concentrated at the top of this rarely run river. To avoid the harder rapids and enjoy an alpine style (read steep and fast) grade 3 run, put in at the footbridge 1km downstream from the put-in.
Whilst the forestry-track to the put-in is physically drivable, the road is not open for public access so it is recommended to park in the large parking area just downstream of Blengdale Bridge and man-up for the walk-in. You'll have driven past Wellington Bridge at the takeout on the way up the valley.
