The Thursday Paddlers ran this creek on April 23, 2015. Here's a little video:
5/28/2010 Ran the creek from high germany rd down to an access road across from riser road. Water level at the gauge at high germany was 5.7 ft with ~1500cfs. Water was to high and swift for my skill level and would not attempt again.
On our trip(12-15-02)the bellegrove gauge was at 3.3,putting 675c.f.s. in this small creek.The rapids become 2+ and a long cold swim could be very dangerous to the inexperienced paddler!
The minimum gauge reading of 1.7 is a very srapey run. A minimum fun level would be at 2.0+. the reason I have lowered the minimum is you should not miss this a+ scenery creek just because the water is a little low..
Permits are not required for this reach.
We have no additional detail on this route.
