River Description

The first couple of miles of this creek - from Helvetia to Czar runs along the road and does not exceed class II. When the creek leaves the road below Czar there are occasional patches of small boulders offering some complexity. The steepest mile is above and below a left bend in the creek in this section below Czar. The creek is small enough that even small trees easily make riverwide strainers.
