To get to the put-in cross the North Fork Bridge in the town of Three Rivers and drive 3.5 miles up North Fork Drive until the road crosses the river at Bailey Bridge. Park your car downstream far enough so as not to get it towed in one of the many No Parking areas.
This run is not as nice as th one above it. Most people do it once and have had enough. The vegitation along the river is excessive and additional hazards such as hanging vines adds to the hazards described in the run above this. There are a couple of larger rapids near the end of the run. Above 2.5 feet this run gets difficult because of a large amount of brush along the banks.
It is best to continue downstream .5 miles and take out at Cort Gallery below Lower Slicky.
Look upstream Paradise Beach to Bailey Bridge (Class 3+T/4)
