Clearwater, S. Fork, Idaho, US
Bully Creek to Highway 13 (Mickey Mouse)
||IV (for normal flows)
This run is called Mickey Mouse, but it is not. Stop at the rest stop by the bridge and look at
Blackerby. This is not typical, but you will have to run it. Well, maybe you donÂt. The road is
along the river for scouting and portaging. Shorter runs are possible.
Put in around MP14. The first five miles are relatively quiet between short class IV drops. Scout
these drops from the road; They can be tricky. Just above the bridge begins one mile of Blackerby,
a gravel bolder garden. I like to take out at MP8. Easier bolder gardens continue for a while. The
flat spots become flatter and longer and the drops become shorter, rockier, and easier. This
continues all the way to MP0 more or less. The higher the water, the lower you should put in.

MP0 and MP8.
To get to the put-in

below MP14. Castle Creek Campground is well marked at Âmile post 14.5Â.
