River Description

Puttin: The puttin is a small pullout on the left side of 178 heading north just passed Camp McCall. Follow the trail leading from the pullout until you see the gorge of Reedy Cove Creek. From there bushwack down to the rivers edge.

Takeout: This site has some info on how to get to the Falls/Takeout.
The trail to above the waterfall is on river left of the creek before you get to twin falls at a point when the trail is close to the creek, cross the creek an head up hill to the top. This trail continues alongside the creek for most of the way up to camp McCall.

P.S.
I have not run all of the creek just from the slide above Twin Falls down. I am also fairly sure that no one has run this creek.

10 or so slides that run on for about 100 yds, a no brainer and a lot of fun. Just watch out for the low hanging rhododendron. Directly below this is a good sized pool take out at this pool.

Gateway To Death
This is the pool just after Galactic Oddysea and is noticeable because of the large bent railroad beams at the end of the pool, there is also a large strainer. It is a fairly large pool/low volume stream so it should not be to hard to get out there, but if you do mess up you are running Twin Falls. : (

Don't run it! The portage trail is on river left and is fairly steep.

The Flume (Class III, Mile 1.9)
A 150 ft. long low angle slide at the bottom of Twin Falls. Pretty much the end of the whitewater section
