Van Duzen (Goat Rock)

Stretch: Bridgeville to Golden Gate Drive
Difficulty: Class V
Distance: 3.1 miles
Flows: 500?-1,500 cfs (500 may be too low, we don't know how low it has been run, it may be a lot of fun, or cause more portaging. 1,500 would be scary in my opinion. 800-1,000 is optimum. Dreamflows Gauge)
