River Description

The season for this run is generally April and May. It sometimes runs into June but generally tapers off by the end of the month. Because it's class II, this river is often overlooked with so many options in the spring but its a great run for instruction with some fun playspots to keep everyone happy. For most of the run the river left bank is agricultural land and river right is the state-managed Teanaway Community Forest. Over the course of the run there are a number of sandstone ledges that form great surfing waves that are the perfect size to learn on. Stay alert for wood hazards which shift from year to year.

Logistics: Take Highway 970 which heads east out of Cle Elum and at mile 6.9 turn north onto Teanaway Road. Follow Teanaway Road to mile 0.5 and turn left onto Red Bridge Road. Follow this road 0.5 down to the bridge across the Teanaway River and the take-out. The state manages a formal public access on the downstream river right side of the bridge.

To reach the put-in, head back out to Teanaway Road and continue upstream to mile 7.1 where the road cross the river. The put-in is on the upstream river right side of the bridge.
