This creek is extremely short but it has some fun falls, surf waves, and slides. It is really only worth doing if you are also hitting Cedar Falls Creek. There are some strainers.
I actually prefer to hike up the creek or put in off the Park road since that does not draw attention from land owners upstream.
This double drop falls is the biggest rapid on the creek.

Permits are not required for this reach.
The best access is not really Morning Sun Road. That gives you some extra class II drops but you can just park at the takeout and hike up the side trail. If you're in the neighborhood to run Cedar Falls Creek you can see if this one is running at the same time.
