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
