All the rivers and creeks in northwest Arkansas are HIGH! Check with a local outfitter before you go, know your ability if you decide to jump on something, have the right equipment and experience! Be careful out there!
If you're camping along a creek or river, have an escape route
Helton's to Twin Bridges. Unbelievable how wide Piney Creek is now! There's still a tree down at Summer's Bend, just past Crabaugh's Cabin. It's on river right and it's in the rapid. Stay far river left and paddle hard. Don't get close to the wave or it will suck you right in to it!
Everything else was passable, but be on the look-out for new trees down. There were a couple that were deceiving from upstream, but there were ways around them.
LONG POOL to TWIN BRIDGES: On the lower run, at the end of Haystacker Rapid above the bridge there's a tree down in the curve on river right. Just past the cabin that sits high on the bank on river right & just above the bridge. There was one last year, it got washed out with the last big water, but another one has fallen in. You can get around it, but again you have to paddle. It will be different with the different water levels. The lower the creek gets the harder it is to navigate, all the current is running in to it at lower water.
