well done guys for putting that together.

Agree with what you say about trees been a problem in the lower gorge section, best to take out at the steps after Mallyan Spout.
For a longer section i tend to put in above Nelly Ayre Foss waterfall-- to put on here go back up the hill over the cattle grid and take your first right and park at bottom of road, follow briddleway down fo tiver.

More info will be in Jonny Briggs guide.

Paddled yesterday, If paddling be aware of the first major feature mentioned in the guide as "The Beck then bends river right and you are confronted with a horizon line. In very high levels there is a line river left, if low the left line is an impassable boulder choke that would probably lead to a pin. River right leads into an enclosed pool at all levels, the entrance to the pool has a small drop and stopper. Once in the pool it is a mandatory portage as you cant paddle out of it" the left line appeared to just about go but was very tight and almost a must hit as the entrance rapid to the enclosed pool was pushing with reasonable force into nasty siphons. We portaged as the fun vs risk factor was a bit skewed.
