"To the unsuspecting, Copeland Creek is just another side tributary on the Boulder Flat run of the North Umpqua; however, this creek offers much more. Adventurous souls will be rewarded by numerous ledges, boulder gardens, slides, and falls on one of the best class 4 creeks in the state. After 0.3 mile of easy class 2 warm-up, the first drop of consequence occurs on a hard right turn. A boof down the center line is recommended, though dropping through the narrow river right slot can result in a stern squirt or even a mystery move. The next 0.75 mile holds many similar types of drops and several fun slides. When the creek divides around a large island, take the right channel and proceed carefully as Paul Bunyan Falls lurks just downstream." Read more
