River Description


 

Put in:  Take dirt access roads down to the river below Cherry Valley Dam.   Elevation is about 4390 feet above sea level.    If releases are coming from Eleanor Reservoir, boaters can try launching into Eleanor Creek, though it  is reported to be a portage fest.  An alternative is to hike in to the confluence of Cherry Creek and Eleanor Creek.   There is no trail.  Some groups have found relatively easy travel, while others have struggled and suffered.

Take out:  There is a large parking area on river left, just downstream of the powerhouse.    Elevation is 2230 feet above sea level.   There is also a bridge across the creek about 3/4 of a mile upstream of the powerhouse.
