Deep Creek Wild and Scenic River

Deep Creeks origin is to the north of the BLM parcel and on private lands. This spectacular section of the stream runs thru the Deep Creek Wilderness and contains world class features such as deeply incised canyons hundreds of feet deep, large waterfalls, deep plunge pools and awesome hanging gardens. The photographic scenery of the area is exemplary and is not common in the area. This section provides an excellent illustration of the hydrologic transition from headwaters to a deeply incised canyon, all within a few miles. Visitors are willing to travel very long distances to visit this area for the spectacular beauty and physical challenges the canyon provides.
