This exciting run is on a tributary of the Row River. It is normally class 3 to 4, but becomes a challenging class 4 to 5 run at flood stage. The entire run can be scouted from the road while running the shuttle. When nearby Brice Creek is too high or too low, Layng Creek can be a fun alternative. As usual, at higher flows the river is unforgiving to the unprepared. Just below the put-in is Rujada Falls, a 4-foot drop. Run left. About 0.5 mile downstream is The Plunger. At high water, it can be quite dangerous and should be scouted from the road. Below the confluence with Brice Creek is some of the most enjoyable whitewater of the trip. At high water, it is a fast, continuous flush, complete with large waves and big holes. Be sure to recognize the take-out just above Wildwood Falls. The falls have been run at high water. Character: forested.
