River Description

Wolf Creek is a very short run with almost non-stop difficult rapids. The creek starts off with a big waterfall and continues down to the Little River with some monsterous gradient. Basically this creek needs no description because if you are good enough to be considering hard and dangerous class V+ rivers then you can figure out how to get down Wolf Creek. If you are not a serious creek boater go somewhere else.

"This Wolf has no really reliable gauge. You need to look at the creek to check if it is running. Realize the canyon will probably be at a scary huge level and you will be running Deep Throat at some screaming high level. Wolf Creek is hard to describe adequately. It is a typical very steep limestone sandstone creek. There are several drops that I'd advise portaging. A few are probably not runnable, or at least not really healthy to run. If you are good enough to make the creek just remember that it flows into the Little River about a quarter mile below Humpty Dumpty. Takeouts include the Chairlift or the Canyon's mouth."

This weekend I painted a gage on Wolf Creek. The gage is on the downstream river left wall of the culvert on Canyon Rim Road/Rt 176. Best seen from river right. Last year we checked the creek during a high water day to see if it was running. We walked down to the waterfall and looked downstream, it was too low to run. So I marked the culvert wall. Based on that mark (8

Visual, but the canyon will probably be at a legitamate flood stage.
