Nestled in a deep river valley and flowing predominantly through the Manistee National Forest, the Pine River answers the call for the Bush Whacker;

The navigable portion of the Pine is approximately 67 miles in length; At base flow, the mainstream of the Pine River averages two feet in depth. It has an average gradient of 12 feet per mile, sheesh that IS an uphill paddle!

Wrong pine river. There are three pine rivers in Michigan. The pine that goes through Manistee forest is a blast, only decent rapids in lower michigan.

Creative liberties WILL be taken to make things interesting including mis-location of rivers!! hahahahaha
