American Whitewater's website says it is 6.2 miles of class II with Cemetery Rapid being an easy III.

You did not mention what type of boat do you want to take 700 is going to be very low.

It's exactly what lmyers said and Cemetery rapid is not much at this level. You should be good to go in a hard shell but it will be shallow in spots.

It's pretty low right now. I floated it a week ago and was scraping my kayak on rocks for a good chunk of the time. We did black bridge to two rivers. Cemetery was pretty boring. I'm also a new kayaker, and grizzly to South Canyon has been a lot more fun for me personally.
