River Description

Note: Jan. 2009 ice storm deposited lots of wood in the creek, creek is currently most likely unrunnable. The combination of Steep banks and lots of dead red oak trees (thanks to the borer beetle infestation) tend to clog the creek with wood from time to time, so keep a look out.

This is a very small creek. Tight slots, fast slides, waterfalls, undercuts. Especially in the first mile.
