River Description


This is one of a half-dozen in-town 'micro creeks' which (reportedly) can be fun during (or immediately after) good rains. While overall gradient may not be all that significant, be aware that running smaller creeks such as this has it own set of dangers. Any downed tree can block the entire stream. Rapids may not inherently exceed class II in difficulty (other than in extreme conditions, where they may become marginally class III). However, SOLID class III skills are strongly suggested, to be able to read and react to conditions. You need to be able to control your craft, to be able to backpaddle, to catch eddies, and confidently maneuver in current.
We would appreciate any additional specific information about rapids and any 'permanent' structures (rocks, ledges, bridges, culverts, etc) which may create either fun features or hazards in this stream. If you have run this, please help out your fellow boaters by adding your input via the 'comments'.

We do have reports that there are "A few good surfs, one really nasty hole behind Parkway South High school."

The 'visual gauge' is the low water bridge at Vance Trails Park -- water has to be going over it for there to be enough water to run this creek.
