Jordan Creek is a main tributary to the Wilson River. When the Wilson gage is between 5' and 10' this is a great place to paddle. The run gets a little rocky at lower flows, and gets pushy and more difficult as the flow increase. Jordan Creek is a great introduction to creek boating. Some steep drops, technical rock gardens and narrow shoots make this run great for stepping up your class III boating skills.
Mile 0: After driving the the end of Joran Creek Road follow a trail that goes back up stream and down to the rivers edge.
Mile 2.9: Bridge Rapid (III+) is easily scouted as you drive up to put-in. Some eddy hopping at the top leads into a diagonal river wide ledge drop. A bunch of water pushes into a wall on the left but can be avoided by catching a river right eddy after the ledge.
A couple of miles downstream from Bridge Rapid you will notice a river wide log jam. There is plenty of space to pull over on the left for a quick and easy portaged.
Mile 5.5: Jordan creeks offers one more fun wave train as it enters the Wilson River. Take out on river left and walk back to your shuttle vehicles across HWY 6
