The Pony Pasture Rapids are located off Riverside Drive. This area of the river has a lot of space for all sorts of activities. Small, shallow pools are perfect for children floating in lifejackets. Small, Class 2 rapids are suitable for inner-tubing, floating and rafting. The parking lot at the area’s entrance is usually full, especially on weekends. That area of the river includes the upper and lower rapids - both of which are usually calm and easy.

The peace and quiet of The Wetlands is also recommended, which is connected to Pony Pasture through river trails. There are several wildlife blinds to allow for bird and critter watching, including ducks, heron, turtles, beaver and muskrat. If the crowds at Pony Pasture are too much, there are also sandy, shallow beaches near the Wetlands.
