Oak Creek - 01. Upper Oak Creek

Oak Creek, Arizona, US


01. Upper Oak Creek (Slide Rock Section)

Usual Difficulty V (for normal flows)
Avg. Gradient 140 fpm

River Description

There are several put in locations to chose from, between Banjo Bill and Pumphouse Wash, which are all roadside parking. This run is a solid grade higher than the Indian Gardens run, and has major consequences should you miss your line. Slide Rock rapid is the main attraction on this run, scouting it on river right is the smart choice. The takeout is at the lower end of Manzanita Campground on river right.

For more information, refer to guide book "Paddling Arizona" by Tyler Williams.
