This stream flows through the town of Clackamas in an out of place mini gorge. The put in is on a highway and the from the take out you can see stoplights, an odd setting for an Oregon creeking run.
The run is mainly class II-III, but care must be taken to avoid fences crossing the stream, logs in a committing gorge, and a runnable 18 foot waterfall.
If you are intrigued by adventure and the promise of a new waterfall to run, check this run out when the beaver creek gauge is around 8 ft.
