Canyon Creek combines challenging whitewater with beautiful scenery despite heinous logging along the drainage. This run has it all: boulder gardens, tight gorges, and waterfalls. At low to medium flows, Canyon Creek is an excellent run for those who are just beginning to paddle more difficult creek runs. At high flows, it can humble the best of paddlers. All in all, Canyon Creek is one of the classic runs in southwestern Washington and should not be missed by paddlers with the skill and experience to run it!
