River Description


Gauge:  This run doesn't get paddled very often, so the gauge range is of known runnable flows (not many data points).  It is possible this run could be done a little higher, or a little lower.

 

This is a great class IV-IV+ steep creek. Access is an issue as it crosses private property before continuing on Weyerhaeuser land. Several 'No Trespassing' signs are posted at the first gate. The run somewhat correlates to a medium level for the more well known 3 Bears run on the main Molalla. The put-in requires a ~4 mile hike in over a gravel road. A good take out option exists on the main Molalla approximately 2 miles downstream from the confluence at a day use site called The Cedars owned by ODFW on river right.
