This is another easy outing; excellent for first time gorge scramblers. The bedrock creek bed allows for easy walking. There is, however, one mandatory, rather cold swim of about 50 feet in length where the canyon walls converge. After the mandatory swim the creek bed offers several easily negotiated stair step like drops which require zigzagging down the gorge. Following this is a unique stretch where you walk in veined rock. This makes for neat water channels and pools.
