Maravillas Creek (no known descents), Texas, US
|Usual Difficulty||III-IV (for normal flows)|
|Avg. Gradient||31 fpm|
Normally dry arroyo. It is unknown whether this creek has ever been run. The source of the difficulty rating and other beta is unknown. This reach is not listed in the most recent edition of the Texas Whitewater handbook.
Alternate put-in: Nine Point Draw, 10 miles S on FM 2627.
Put-in is approximately 2730' elevation.
Take-out is approximately 1630' elevation.
Therefore total elevation change is approximately 1100'.
NOTE: This reach has been (at least temporarily) delisted for the following reasons:
-- No known descents
-- All known beta is hypothetical
-- Source of beta is unknown (reach cannot be found in "Texas Whitewater" or other authoritative sources)
-- No gauge or correlation beta exists
-- Stream runs very rarely
-- Remote area makes visual scouting difficult
-- Extreme logistical difficulty makes it unlikely that anyone will ever run the whole thing
