VISITOR INFORMATION DURING HIGH WATER EVENTS
The water is high, cold, fast, and deep: in these conditions hypothermia is a real and serious risk.
Please be aware that landings and the roads leading to them may be, or may become, submerged. Whether driving or walking, any time you encounter water over a road or trail, turn around and do not enter the water.
Watch for low bridges: be prepared to portage around them.
