Lumber River

This river should probably only be kayaked when you have a couple days to explore everything that it has to offer. You can enjoy seeing many different types of wildlife as well as scenery as you kayak along. Being able to view scenery that is still pure while kayaking is probably the most rewarding thing about this river.
