River Description

Elk Creek was pretty sweet. Follow the directions in the Holbeck stanley book. We put in @ Sulpher Springs w/ about 300 CFS. More water equals hiking higher up. Better rapids above this put-in. The run itself is dope. Everything goes. Big Spout rapid, run the spout not the crack. We ran the crack and regretted it. You'll know what I'm talking about when you're there. We had our bike temporarily stolen @ take-out..............

Class IV run. Solid IV boaters will have fun. Nothing extremely crazy or dangerous. Hike up above sulpher like I said, apparently this is where the goods are. There was a sweet 6' drop on the run about ~1/4 of the way down.
I would say we were on the lowside of good w/ 300 CFS.

Good Luck
