Hills Creek, Oregon, US
|Usual Difficulty||III-IV(V) (for normal flows)|
|Avg. Gradient||60 fpm|
The main event (a short mini gorge) is challenging, has oddball lines, and looks a little dangerous. It can be and on the class five end of things, though there is an easy portage up to the road and around on the right. The rest of the run is nice class III-IV with a couple unique rapids, including some short slides. The scenery is also good and unique in places.
The waterfalls above the normal put in on Hills Creek are runnable as of Spring 2010, though wood sometimes collects so scout them out before hauling your gear in there..
