River Description

This is a hike-in run located in the Upper Skagit River drainage. You can access the take-out and the trailhead for the hike in at Highway 20 mile 141.2. From the trailhead it's about a six mile hike up to the put-in. In theory you could access the put-in for this run from Hart's Pass, but in practice you will probably end up doing just as much hiking to get in from the top and a whole lot more driving.

After having an awsome day on Granite Creek, we decided to give the six mile hike in to canyon creek a try.
Afterwards we decided it would be better to do granite both days.
The hike in was not bad, but the rapids were meager and only one notable class V drop that was manky and not worth running.
If you like to look at old mining wreckage, and pretty scenery. Maybe its worth doing.
