The paddle out for...

Stinging Fork, Dunlap Creek and Little Piney Creek

 

Class III.4

 

Soak Creek is the paddle out for Stinging Fork, Dunlap and Little Piney, to be honest there isn't much to write here about, it's a boogie paddle out , when you just ran the hard stuff...

 

It is also a fun , hike up as far as you can stand it run. You can park at the Piney park , and walk up.This is one of the last to drop out after a rain event.

 

Go past this gate, and then hike beside the creek.The state has blocked this off to keep the rednecks from tearing it up in there. KUDOS TO THE PARK RANGERS!

***Warning label***

Whitewater paddling is VERY Dangerous, and you should get instruction before ever attempting even to paddle flatwater. One of contributors to this web site has personally helped bury 3 kayaking friends, this isn't a joke. Whitewater paddling can ruin your life through accidents and can effect your family and friends throughout a lifetime.

The information on this page is incomplete, inaccurate, and very unreliable.   Use with caution.  Whitewater paddling is a dangerous sport and the information here is not a substitute for actual knowledge and skill.  The authors are not liable for your actions. Go ahead and kill yourself if you want to, but don't blame others for you actions and decisions that you will make on and off the river.
