This large bowl offers a 17 ft waterfall if you're lucky enough to catch it at a high flow. In the summer, it transforms into a fun swimming hole and cliff jumping hideaway.
Unfortunately Battle Creek seldom flows; it needs a nice hard rain. It averages one or two days a year. The drainage is only 66 square miles at the gauge which is below the confluence of Iron Creek. It is worth the wait, though. It has a nice steep section capped off with 20 ft. Hippy Hole.
