The first 5 miles of this run contain a number of class 3 drops. The action is continuous as Cow Creek cuts down through a narrow valley to its flood plain above Riddle. A 20-year flood in 1995 swept all debris from the river, and we observed no strainers. The terrain is steep and reminds one of the adjacent Rogue River drainage. Numerous tunnels for the railroad paralleling the creek suggest the rugged past of this country. Character: forested.
