Just so you know, the first paragraph of the above post was about Indian Creek which feeds into Deep Creek. The second paragraph was about Deep Creek.

Some of the NOC guys have run it .You can hike in just off the east shoulder of Newfound Gap .I've heard it is miles of serious class 5 .Likely very serious water .

It's fun on a tube also. A couple weeks ago, I ran from the next bridge up. That gave me a couple four foot drops and a five footer before the big slide. It was fun, but that last drop is the best part of it. Above that bridge, it does look pretty flat and it's very narrow, so probably a lot of strainers.

Deep Creek is a lot of fun. Better on a tube than in a kayak though. We tubed it at higher water that same weekend and some of the holes got a bit sticky in our tubes. One of the children with us flipped off her tube. My daughter (9 years old) tried to pull her up on her tube, she flipped off her tube. I tried to get them both on my tube and we all ended up swimming a couple hundred yards before we could get out. It was very pushy and the girls were freaking out. I thought it was very funny.
