The Flint is an easy river to tube float or canoe or kayak. The main navigable parts are easily broken up into 1.5 -2 hour parts.

Dropped in off Winchester and pulled out off hwy 72. Not an extreme route at all. There were fewer rapids then expected and only took about 2.5 hours to complete. I was told after pulling out that the best part if this river is putting in at 72 rather then pulling out. I'm not sure where to pull out for that route.
