Class: Grade III-III+

Level: Runnable after rain

Gauge: Visual

Length: 1km

Time: 1/2 hour.

Put in: Walk in around the gate, past the water tank and down to the creek.

Take out: Causeway after 1st Bridge

Character: Narrow boulder garden

Notes: When the level is high there are few eddies amd look out for timber after 1st rains.
This is a very sweet run but short. We usually run it on the way to the Russell River, or on the way back. It is a good afternoon run if time and light permit.
You need to be there soon after the rain as it falls away fast.
Always look out for trees in the river.
If water is high and pushy, the eddies seem to be far and few between. A good roll in preassure situations is a must on this creek.
