This is great little creek with some some powerful bedrock drops, boulder gardens and one ski-jump style slide (Lower Boulder Falls). It's a great per-warmer for the step-up run - Bear Creek (Victor, MT). The slides and falls section at the end are the crux and must be scouted carefully as there are few eddies and wood moves around year to year. It's a small creek and really at all levels you should scout everything.
The top half is mostly short slides with some boulder drops with one long low angle slide.
The take out is at the pool at the bottom of Lower Boulder Cr. Falls or continue another hundred yards or so through a steep boulder garden.
First big drop at the start of the gorge.
This is a spectactular cascade that can throw you airtime at higher flows. The top section (Island Falls) rumbles down a rowdy slide and is quickly followed by the main drop which blasts upward off a bedrock ledge or at lower flows, screams left over a 5ft drop into a pool.
