The map below shows a good portion of the route that I had tracked.

This is where we parked, which was the start point of the tracking. (Note: We did not go to the end of Double Eddy Road to park, as there was no room to park at the time) From there we took the trail which comes out to the bottom of the second falls.

The following photos were taken down along the trail to where there was a picnic table. Note: In the photo above, where the tree line is at back end of photo is where the picnic area is.) Just continue down the trail from the bottom of the Great White Slide.

The next set of photos are taken at the picnic area. This section I believe is theĀ Dogleg III Rapids andĀ Mindscrambler III Rapids section.
I took photos from the top, and then we walked around further down to get some lower views.

It was at this point we back tracked and went to our vehicle and drove down to the take out on Taylorville Road.
Which is at the power plant. Silly me also thought I was still tracking, BUT did not turn it back on, so I will do my best to detail.

To view the Take Out section, and to view the Powerline Boof IV Rapids Section from the bottom. From the parking area you will walk through the gate and continue straight ahead following the small path to the river.

To explore this whole section from start to finish took us about 2 1/2 hours. For actual walking distance in both areas maybe about 1 1/2 miles.
