Their second bridge is very low and would not be passable with an oar-framed raft. This bridge is recognizable by the small rustic cabins on the right bank. Passengers in a paddle raft must get below the tubes to fit under the bridge. Immediately head far right for a clear channel. The good news is all three channels under the bridge are free of wood. In the past, just the far left was passable which made the immediate right a difficult move to see after popping out from under the bridge. Please respectfully float this section.
I've heard through the grapevine that the bridge will have to be replaced soon as it's too weak to support the weight of the construction equipment/trucks needed to develop the properties on the river left side.
