At present, this should be considered a 'theoretical' run. We have no specific awareness of any actual runs on this stream. However, a former gauge (at Boney Falls 'H' Road) listed drainage area of 40 square miles, which should be more than adequate to generate boatable flows. Gradient is sufficient to potentially create whitewater interest. And, specifically, there is a named falls just before this stream dumps into the Escanaba River.
It is unknown how feasible or accessible the listed put-in or take-out locations are, or whether the stream is a wooded-up snagfest. It may be that only the final mile (or some final fraction of a mile) has any merit. Or the 'brook' and its falls may not provide any reasonable whitewater interest.
Anyone having specific knowledge about this area is encouraged to provide 'Comments'.

This may be the better choice for access, to just do the bottom mile.
With drainage area of 40 square miles, this 'brook' should be more than adequate to generate boatable flows.We have no specific knowledge of any reasonable way to 'gauge' this river, other than by on-site visual inspection. (If it looks 'do-able', do it! Then report back to us!)

If someone gets hurt on a river, or you read about a whitewater-related injury, please report it to
American Whitewater. Don't worry about multiple submissions from other witnesses, as our safety
editors will turn multiple witness reports into a single unified accident report.
Log into the American Whitewater website and you can contribute to river descriptions,
flow and access tips, and maps associated with runs you've done. You can even add new
runs to the inventory!
