Briggs Woods Spillway Ditch 166
Seasonal flow, but a unique opportunity for the whitewater thrill of a five ledge drop of 20 feet in just .3 miles, at speeds of 60 feet per minute through the rapids. The spillway feeds from a 70 acre lake which offers a sand beach, fishing from shore or via boats with electric motors, and canoe or kayak rentals.
