Pringle Run is short but very steep. It contains several challenging boulder drops, some steep slides, and a waterfall. Although it’s not that long, you’ll need expert creeking skills to get down in one piece. The scenery could be very pretty, but trash along the banks ruins this aspect. Your eyes will be glued to the rapids anyway. As with all small steep creeks, scout when in doubt and be on the lookout for downed trees. This creek can be run several times or combined with one of the many other creeks in the area.
