The Washburn is a swift river running between two dams. Water is released on a schedule to suit paddlers. It's controlled and reliable.
Facilities include car parking, toilets and often a shuttle and catering on release days. There's a £10 charge for the day.
The water is generally cold and warm gear even in summer is a good idea.
The top section is quick and interesting and is the site of Div 2 and 1 slaloms. Further down, the river becomes chunker and a Prem race used to be held here. There is a footpath bank-side all the way down.
It'sa beautiful place to paddle and meeting place for paddling friends.
