    Best go to one of these other sites for the info you really want

    Gary Valle's Yucca Creek Page has a writeup and photos

    The author has not personally made this run nor scouted it. From the descriptions by others, there is no trail to the put in and the hike involves considerable bushwacking through poison oak. The put in is as far up as you want to bushwack.

    Continue downstream on the North Fork (Class 4/5)
