River Description

Double Branch is a real "backyard" flood creek. This little stream makes a mad dash over some ledges and rocks as it plunges from Hwy.178 to Hwy.88. The creek could be run with one car if you don't mind walking a one mile shuttle or just parking at the bottom and walking up to the top of the run.
