i had a great time running the river with the n.h.amc paddlers.
From the Pemi Trailhead down to Campton
I've done it in three separate sections.
Above North Woodstock it gets pretty steep. I'd only do that on my knees in a whitewater boat.
From North Woodstock down it's mostly Cobble bar. OK for poling but not a lot of features to help if you want to push upstream.
Some day I'd like to see what's between Campton and Bristol and what's between Bristol and Franklin.
For that matter it might be fun to see if you could pole up through Bristol to the dam.
DougD and Fluke have poled the section from Thornton to Campton a few times.
i love trips like that!
