This run starts out boney and tree-infested with the creek meandering through a beautiful little valley. After a few hundred yards, the creek descends into a very deep gorge, plunging almost 450 feet in elevation over the 3-mile length of the canyon. The creek has a gradient of over 160 fpm for the first mile, lets up a bit for the second mile (120 fpm), and finishes in grand style for the third (160 fpm). This is steep creeking at its absolute best: continuous rapids, blind drops, few eddies, pin spots galore. Character: gorge; forested.
