Stebbins Creek roars through the bottom of Washington’s Brice Canyon over a series of waterfalls and powerful, technical drops. At low flows, this run is tight and technical. At high water, it is downright dangerous. If you are smart, you will do it at low flows the first time so you can figure out where to portage and scout. The first 0.5 mile or so is playful class 2, but soon the creek bends to the right and the fun begins with the first falls, a 10-footer that drops into a 100- foot-long slide that ends at 12-foot Jetboat Falls. Downstream the creek mellows temporarily and then paddlers encounter Get in My Belly, an 8-foot ledge that funnels into a small, recirculating punchbowl with a narrow outlet on the left. Character: forested/ canyon.
