This is a short run that goes quickly when it is running. It has a mostly continuous nature and few well defined drops, making it less popular than the nearby Devil’s Lake Fork Wilson R. and Jordan Creek.
The put-in is marked by a OHV sign where the West North Fork Wilson joins the North Fork. There are several play spots along this run and a nice pool below the Wilson River Trail footbridge, about 1 mile before the confluence with the main Wilson. Jones Creek Rapid (III) is located at the take-out.
When the Wilson gauge is around 2000-2500 cfs it is kind of low and gets better when the Wilson is at least 3000 cfs.
