River Description

This is a really fun creek, but the water level has to be good; at lower levels, it's like class 3 and one class 4 slide. At high levels, it's a whole new monster.

See also the two reaches downstream of this one: Horton Rd. to Meekerville Rd Bridges (Class I-II) and Meekerville Bridges to Steel Bridge on Woodhull Rd (Miracle Mile) (Class III+(V))

Does anybody know about how to get to the put-in? There doesn't appear to be a road less than 5 miles near it.
