Dickshooter Wild and Scenic River

Dickshooter Wild and Scenic River

Dickshooter Creek flows south and the stream cuts a narrow deep gorge through the rolling plateau landscape until it joins with Deep Creek.  The waters of Dickshooter cease to flow by late-spring to early summer; leaving behind only isolated pools in the gravel streambed.  This canyon provides outstanding hiking and backpacking opportunities. This is not a boatable section of river.
