    Default Granite Creek/East Fork Six Mile Trip Report 5/31

    I floated Granite Creek into Six Mile today. I thought of putting in at the Bertha Creek Campground but there were a few trees stuck in the only convienient put-in for my 13í cat. It would be fine for packraft, IKs, etc. I was solo and donít feel like fighting the alders on either side of the logjam so I opted to put-in 2 miles downstream beneath the Seward Hwy bridge. From there itís about a 5 mile/2 hour float to the Six Mile whitewater put-in where I took out. I just bike shuttled back to the put-in prior to the float.

    Granite Creek is a little skinny until past the campground where Canyon Creek enters from
    the left and almost triples the volume. There were no wood hazards that couldnít be avoided on 5/31 but there are a lot of logs available to change conditions at anytime. Use caution on this section.
