The Pine River flows gently through jack pine forests and quiet water. The lake and hill country in this area illustrate classic glacial landforms. The river flows through several lakes, including Norway Lake and the Whitefish chain. River width ranges from 25 to 150 feet. There are only a few rapids, and they are Class I at most water levels. About rapids classes. Tell me more about this river's landscape, wildlife, and history.
