Yeeesh. I just skimmed through those comments. Some people just have no idea when to just zip it.

Some people just also don't understand the power of strong flowing water. It's very tragic.

Perhaps more signs at trailheads like the ones at the same river canoe rental place are in order. Explaining that this isn't Disney world. Perhaps it may turn someone back. Perhaps not.

Was it Abe Lincoln or Mark Twain who said it is better to remain silent at the risk of being thought a fool than open your mouth and remove all doubt?

Wise words.

Regarding flip flops, I cannot understand this one. Flip flops fall apart when you are using them on inclines/declines from pressure eventually pulling the toe strap right out of the rubber bottom making it useless. Sandals like teva style that strap around the whole foot and have some traction are moderately better as they tend not to fall apart, but I wouldn't hike in them beyond a low elevation, short mileage hike, like on a rail trail.
