River Description

This is a hike up run, and unless you plan on firing up the huge and intense Kick Yer Dog Falls, Thunderhead is usually a better way to go. Still, if you are looking to do something different, hike a couple three miles up this creek for some rhodo in your face, wood riddled, eddy scramblin fun.

Hiking up several miles yields non stop class 3-4 creeking with the last 3/4 mile sporting some serious drops. First is a cool multi tier waterfall series of around 20 feet, then the creek enters a tight little canyon. Right below a sticky 8 foot ledge is Kick Yer Dog Falls, a drop that looks like it was imported from the Raven's Fork Gorge. It is a twenty foot bouncy waterfall right into a super sticky five foot ledge hole, snaking right into a thirty foot slide with piton potential. The run out is in a hurry to say the least.

Below here is class 4 with one slide rapid and then the final manky drop into the confluence with Thunderhead Prong. As always, wood is always moving around in streams like this, so keep your head up and the eddys in sight.
