A small tributary of the Sauk River that enters near Clear Creek
Campground a couple miles southeast of Darrington. There are two
miles of class IV rapids from Eightmile Creek to Asbestos Falls (falls are
unrunnable). This stretch can be accessed along FR 2060 which leaves
FR 20 across from Clear Creek Campground. The run parallels the road
and starts where FR 2060 crosses Clear Creek. Alternatively, you can
hike and boat your way upstream from the Sauk confluence to paddle a
lat/long approximate by Tiger Map server.
