		Area Map
	Topo Quad(s): Alread, Botkinburg, Old Lexington, Clinton
	Gradient: ??? fpm
	Length: 20 mi
	Season: RAIN
	Gauge: none.  The Big Piney gauge is a reasonable estimate.  The
		Piney should be between 4 and 7 feet for a good run.
	Hazards: numerous strainers
	Description: This is a long but fun run, and it makes a good overnight
		trip, if you secure permission for camping on private land.
		Other put-ins are possible, but be sure you get permission
		to cross private lands to get to the river.  The run has
		many class II+ rapids, and the whitewater is fairly 
		continuous much of the way.  Willow strainers can be
		a major hazard, however, so stay on your toes.  This is
		a good run for paddlers comfortable on class II-III water.
