Site Description: 
A breached dam in Enfield is a hazard to paddlers. Experienced boaters may be able to navigate the rapids on river left. Those seeking to portage have two options.
More Info: 

The first is a 3.3 mile wheel-able route through town, taking out at the Thompsonville Town and Ramp and putting in at the Kings Island Boat Launch. Those willing to scramble up steep banks can take-out on river right just upstream of the rapids, walk through a parking lot, along a path before putting in at the start of an old canal .This is a much shorter route (.15 miles) but is currently a challenge to navigate.
