Dropping off Taum Sauk Mountain, this might be the steepest stuff in the state. Check out the description in Chris Amelung's Mo Creekin, which says that this crick was first run in 1998--and that it rarely has enough water to run.
Lat/longitude coords are a SWAG.
Check out the Taum Sauk Mountain State Park website.History:
