Love the suggestion of middle Canyon Creek.  I haven't done that in years.  I wonder if that really weird house is still there?  Also, I've heard rumors that you can drive up Green Mountain road to access this section further up, adding a few more miles of class II+ / easy III.          



If you mean this house... It was gone as of 2 years ago.

Yeah - I have done the Canyon Creek 2+ run.

That little class 3 section above the SF Snoqualmie (Twin Falls) sounds good too. Never done it but want to soon.

Some of these runs though, really tame quite a bit at lower levels, including the Raging, which hardly ever is even runnable because it is always too low.

Thanks for the input.


We used to call the Raging the "monday" river because it only seemed to have water in it on a Monday when no one could boat.

I think the "haunted house" on Canyon Creek burned.

Awesome matt. I'm still down. I'd like to run the Pilchuck River into Snoho sometime but I'd like to make it a longer distance run from Machias or something. So maybe you want the nomad for that one? Either way- we should try to do that soon.

Btw- the term is "flip" or "capsize".
Tipping is what you do for your raft guide ($$)


There's a nice easy section of the Pilchuck River I like to run solo once in a while south of Machias... the cool thing is the Centenial trail is right there so you can drop a bike where you want to take out and do your own bike shuttle. Nice for a little after work exercise.

Not that I publicly condone solo boating. But yeah...

jP -

I would love to paddle the Pilchuck with you. If it wasn't on the weekend though I just need a tiny bit of advance so I can request some time off work (maybe even as little as a day or 2), as the Pilchuck is too far from my work to hit it after work (I can get to work super early and get out early enough to do the South Fork Snoqalmie before dark even during these winter days). But in just a few weeks we will have long enough daylight hours to where I could spontaneously hit it after work too.

The pilchuck is in my backyard. Didn't know you were in snoho currently jP. If you guys run the pilchuck, include this chump. I haven't ever been on it and I haven't been on a river since last spring/summer I think. I'm parked next to the Wenatchee right now sippin on some coffee. Got me thinking about boating, hence I'm back on the PP.
