GUIDE TO THE RIVER LOYT

(Loy Tributary)

NAME OF RIVER: Loyt.

WHERE IS IT?: Flows into the normal Loy run.

PUT-INS/ TAKE-OUTS: Access the river from the road where it runs close to the river. It comes in river right just below a significant river wide ledge/drop.

APPROX LENGTH: 5 Metres!

TIME NEEDED: 10 mins.

ACCESS HASSLES: Unknown, but

WATER LEVEL INDICATORS: Best paddled after heavy rain, water should be pouring across the road at the get-on.

GRADING: Daft.

MAJOR HAZARDS/ FALLS:Cars.

GENERAL DESCRIPTION: A grassy ditch with high amusement factor. The hardest bit is getting across the road. Then just a simple paddle down to join the River Loy.

OTHER NOTES: I haven't actually run this, I just took pictures. You may want to add that the Pioneering explorers were Dean Maragh (The trader formerly known as The Watershed) and Clive "Zambezi" Williamson. On being asked why they should want to conquer such a piece of water, the reply was "Well it looked like it would be a giggle, thought we were going to get run over though."
