We definitely didn’t wish to need to be rescued. That will be embarrassing. We did not wish to paddle again to the campground after a failed try on the marsh. The current was working strong. We did not want to abandon a joyful adventure. The Beast of Huge Creek is just a little-known trail race on the annual trail running calendar. It’s tucked between 50milers and 100km races all around the region.

We floated around the corner right into a heavenly meadow, located right under the ever-impressive Balloon Dome. It was here that we encountered probably the most vertical walled part yet. One other high scout revealed the gorge to be paddlable, so after a protracted lunch and a fish slaying, we dropped in. I do not know any humans who could pull down a tree that thick except they knocked it over with a backhoe and stood it up once more. I’m not saying it could’t be a hoax. But, if it is it’s unimaginable.

An higher three-mile section of the Entiat River runs from Lake Creek Campground to the National Forest Boundary. The rapids via the canyon are Class IV+, nevertheless it calms down for the final couple of miles to Class II or III. You will likely have the river to your self as many kayakers decide as a substitute to run the nearby Wenatchee River. Locked and loaded, we stated goodbye to our new associates from Canada, vowing to return for a trip down the mighty Homathko River.
