Hunters Brook, Michigan, US
|Usual Difficulty||II-III (for normal flows)|
|Avg. Gradient||30 fpm|
|Max Gradient||45 fpm|
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'.
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!)
