Paddle from Smith Bridge on S Br of AuSable River to McMasters Bridge on Main AuSable, 13.5 miles in approx 4 hrs with short stop for lunch at Conners Flat. We will work out the 15-minute shuttle when we arrive, but masks will be required. Don‘t forget your PFD & bow/stern lines. I have only paddled this section once on 5/22/12, so do not know the conditions between Chase & the Main AuSable, but have photos of the 4 bridges (not low), and some minor obstacles (branches), but no portages.
