Steep boulder creekin complete with stomping holes and some bedrock thrown in here and there just for fun. The creek is still full of wood from the last couple of years flooding. If it can be caught clean, it is one wicked ride.
IF you find this stream with adequate water, you can hike in with a bowsaw/folding saw and have one bang up day. Just be sure to allow plenty of time for the trip and potential portages.
This run is a step up from Little Stony.
The Clinch @ Speers Ferry should be 7500 and rising for a run on the Mountain Fork.
