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.
