River Description

Latitude / Longitude data are approximate, from the National Atlas.

Kevin Williams relates:
Fun run with 2 slides- one narrow and reminiscent of the last slide on Meadow Run (but not as steep). Watch out for the undercut ledge along the left side and a piton rock near the bottom. The other slide (right at the old furnace) is 25 meters long with a 5� ledge on the left side, a consistent slide on the right and what looks to be a really nasty pinning rock jumble right in the middle. Portage on the right. Water quality on the run is atrocious and from the put-in bridge you can see the most disgusting yellow cascade. The run was pretty low for us. Take a look at the 2nd slide at the furnace; if there is enough water to run the right side, it will probably be a nice level. Take out at the Cheat putin.

A friend and I ran Muddy Creek on March 6, 2014. As I assume this is always a problem for this
section, there are at least 5 trees in the creek after the big slide. This was a serious ELF and we
could get around the trees, but with higher flows they would become serious hazards.
