River Description

Logistics: To reach the put-in, turn on Ingalls Creek Road from Highway 97 (nearest town Peshastin). As you turn onto Ingalls Creek Road, you will cross a bridge over Peshastin Creek that serves as the take-out. An alternate take out is a short distance up river, at a long pull-out along Highway 97, at the confluence of Ingalls and Peshastin Creek. Alternatively, you could just continue down Peshastin Creek. To reach the put-in, continue up Ingalls Creek Road 1.1 mile to the Forest Service trailhead (Forest Pass required) and put-in downstream river right at the gated bridge.

Description: The run starts off with a bang and the biggest rapids are all visible from the bridge at the put-in. You can scout this short sequence or carry down and put-in a little lower on river right. After this introductory sequence of class IV rapids, the run back off to easier class III/IV but it's all very continuous. The shuttle is short, so you can run laps. This run is a great place to develop your creeking skills and provides a fun option to either round out a day on the Wenatchee extend a trip to Peshastin Creek.

Wenatchee River Festival 2008

Thomas O'Keefe

There's still snow in the mountains and flows have been great all spring as boaters from across Washington state gear up to host the Wenatchee River Festival on one of the region's premiere whitewater rivers. Boaters from across the Pacific Northwest will all converge on the town of Cashmere this weekend for a great weekend of fun and activities on the water.
