High velocity creek run for when everthing else is high. Steep boulderbed above the South Boundary Rd culvert leads into an incredible series of good sized slides under a pine bower in close sequence below. Very beautiful spot and worth a visit even if one does not have runnable flows, if only to dream.
Perhaps as little as 3.8 square miles at the point of our indicated put-in, up to maybe 4.25 square miles at lower loop off S.Boundary Road.
Visual from South Boundary Rd or by walking up from campground. This tiny creek is difficult to catch with runnable flows, usually only after heavy rains or rain/snowmelt combination.
Permits are not required for this reach.
