River Description


Canyon Creek is a tributary of the Trinity River.    The main run is short but the upper from the last bridge is kinda like an upper trinity/coffee type thing. Lots of 2 and 3 and great waves at higher flows.

 

Many rapids on the run are on bends.   The current flows over a boulder bar (gravel bar?), pushes into a wall, then turns sharply.   The creek has a really good rapid in a mini gorge near the end.
