Length 2.5 Miles

River Description

Another backcountry kayak run in the North Cascades accessible as a hike in from the shores of Ross Reservoir. Beaver Tail, a sloping ten foot slide followed by a ramp that propels you to the top of an eight-foot slide that drops into a beautiful pool, is the first significant rapid at the start of the gorge. A couple of IV+ rapids that lead up to “Little Beaver Falls”, featuring a clean 12' boof. The next significant drop is “Beaver Whip”, a river-wide slide into a marginally sticky hole. Continuing downstream comes the "Beaver Lodge", a scary 18 foot waterfall with a nasty undercut on the left side. More read and run continues down to the reservoir.
