River Description


A named falls, and gradient throughout make quite an interesting micro-creek run. When the Presque and Black are running large, this may be a great option. Keep in mind that It is small enough to have serious problems with deadfall and snags.

The following helmetcam footage (via YouTube from Jonathan Sisley) will give you a great feel for what is here:

Reportedly a 25' falls in an area of the creek where the banks are very steep and over-hanging.

A photo of this steep, sliding falls is available at Panoramio.

Just before the gate, there is a dirt path on the left that a few trucks had gone down. Google shows that this path connects with the put-in road for this stretch. Worth checking out with a 4WD vehicle.

1.5 Miles from locked gate to Maple Creek Falls, the gate is owned by Steiger's Timber Operations. Probably the land as well.
