If a few volunteers wanted to come out and fill in the pot hole at the top that would be helpful for raft use.

I agree: if youre not man enough to get your boat down, you shouldnt be there. I have always carried my own kayak each time I have ran it except for this last time when a nice couple of guys did it for me while we ran shuttle.

However, after lugging my boat down to the gunny gorge, the lower blue is a piece of cake.

I wish I would've known about these "other trails" before ripping the ass out of my pants two weeks ago. Has anyone thought of putting up a sign with arrows?
