Quite picturesque within a forested canyon, it offers frequent Class III rapids. Most are straightforward pool-drops evenly spaced between Class II water. Intermediate boaters will find the run to be busy, interesting, and reasonable, and the road is always nearby for those who are in over their heads. For boaters who want more action than they get on the middle Wilson River, but not so much as on the Devil’s Lake Fork, Jordan Creek is the ticket. Rapids start just downstream of Jordan Creek’s upper bridge, around a sharp right bend in the creek. It is easy to scout these drops, and boaters should do so to check for debris. The first rapid is about as difficult as they come on the creek, but there are many more like it. Often the creek closes in under a tree canopy. In places the rock walls squeeze in, but many nice beach pullouts line the creek for a break.
