Hunter Creek is a short and tight bit of water
that cannot be kayaked most of the year.
It is rain responsive. When we finish this
kayak trip we always wish that it had been a bit
longer. But on the other hand we've never
done it twice in one day.
This kayak trip is relatively technical. You
must be able to control your boat if you join us
on Hunter Creek. Snags, obstacles &
detours are encountered.
Shorter boats are
better than longer boats. I've paddled
Hunter Creek in my 14' touring kayak and been
OK...but it was tight. I prefer my 10'
Yahoo or my 12' Kestral kayak.
Life jackets are a
must. Wetsuits are advised.
We usually take our kayaks out at Kissing Rock.
Kissing Rock is to the west of Hwy 101, just
south of Hunter Creek.
We normally put-in at Steel Bridge, which is
about 5 miles up river...and just below a dandy
River Eddie typically manages to capsize one or
two kayakers on this trip. A dry change of
clothes is recommended.
