River Description


A neat intermediate run that is only accessible during hunting season.


The upper parts of the run have some neat class IV bedrock rapids in mini-canyons.  The middle part eases off in difficulty with some plucky class IIIs here and there.  Soggy Sneakers calls it "intimate", that is a good word for it.  Make sure to scout the take out from Mill Creek Park, downstream is a nasty crack drop that does not get run as far as AW is aware of.


Call Weyerhaeuser at this number for a recording letting you know what areas are open and when hunting season is.   888-741-5403
