Chinook Creek, Washington, US
|Usual Difficulty||IV-V (for normal flows)|
Tributary of the Ohanapecosh in the Upper Cowlitz drainage near Cayuse Pass on the east side of Mt. Rainier.
Although it can be tricky to catch, this creek has been run a few times. All the gradient is on Chinkook Creek in the first 2.5 miles, which includes two nice waterfalls--and 18' falls and 20' Stafford Falls. Both feed into nice pools and can be run if they're clean.
