This creek is small and intimate, with great scenery and mild class 1-2 rapids. The big problem is a large amount of wood that is scattered all thoughout the run.

Ran on 05-10-09 (Mother's Day) from Twin Bridge to Lavender Bridge at 880 cfs in hand paddles. This
section of White Creek is 3 miles and rarely has enough water to run or if it does, paddlers choose
the more familiar and difficult class runs like Jett to Lilly or Lilly to Nemo. A very fun run with
only the 2 trees we could safely duck under. All other wood and debris had been washed away with
the prior week's enormous 12,000 cfs flow. At this level (880 cfs), the rapids are Class II wave
trains except for a single 2-foot drop. There were at least two surfing waves to play on, one
mid-run and one at the take-out at the old Lavender Bridge. This takeout is river left and very
steep, but great if you are in need of a cardiovascular workout! A very beautiful and important
tributary to Clear Creek and the Obed River!
