Yes, This is a major hiking route at lower water. The N. Fork Road takes you to a trail head at the top of the Narrows way above deep creek. You then hike the creek till you are in the real canyon/narrows. There is an agreement with the private property owners near the trail head and you must hike in the creek bed. I hope there will be enough water to float the upper part to deep creek but it sounds like is is normally very shallow and scrappy...
I have hiked this from the top down in the fall but hope to boat it this year. From my talking to others who have done it they mostly carried/drug their boats till Deep Creek then could float from there. It is a long day so I hope to get an early start if it looks like the water is going to be low.
