River Description


Texas Whitewater describes Cherokee as the "probably the third best whitewater creek in the state" (after Crabapple and Mexican) and describes a "nonstop playground" of whitewater features.  Refer to the book for more specific beta.

The book suggests parking on the south side of the bridge at the put-in to avoid landowner issues.

Difficulty rating and recommended level are taken from the book.  Distances and gradient measured using GIS tools in 2015.

Use the LCRA Hydromet for Cherokee Creek at Bend to determine whether Cherokee is runnable.  The book recommends 5.5' minimum on this gauge and suggests that if the low-water crossing at the takeout is covered, then the creek is runnable.
