    Default paxon lake, outlet to middle fork accessible to power boats?

    Is this navigable in a small jet boat? Never seen it. Is it float only? how about the 'Tractor trail' between hwy and main stem. Is this section easily traveled by unmodified 4wd truck?
    Thanks

    The first three miles between Paxton lake and the west fork confluence are fast, shallow and rocky. I thought it was float only, but don't see any thing saying that, so I might be wrong. I've never been down the trail.

    Shoot gulkana rafting a pm, his business is gulkana raft rentals. I've done the float three times, and I don't think it would be a good idea.

    Also, that trail looks like a small four wheeler trail when it reaches the river. I don't think it would go well if you tried to drive it in a truck, but not too sure.

    Ran a 18 footer with a 88hp motor jet boat down it from the lake years ago, very rocky made it out without hitting and breaking anything, but wouldn't advise it or do it again. to shallow and rocky.
