Lawson Creek, Oregon, US
|Usual Difficulty||IV+ (for normal flows)|
|Avg. Gradient||114 fpm|
|Max Gradient||150 fpm|
Nice bouldery rapids for the first part, a short gorge near the end, then a pleasant runout to the Illinois.
There is a cross-county style hike in where a trail used to exist, the distance is less than a mile and mostly open terrain.
The Illinois @ Kerby running 3,000 cfs and the Elk River [541-332-0405] running at 4.4' was a nice flow for the run.
