West Branch East Canada Creek

The West Branch of the East Canada Creek is a 4 mile tributary of the East Canada Creek, starting about 3/4 mile east of Powley Place Bridge and proceeding west for about 4 miles to Big Alderbed Lake.

Except for late summer and other times of very low water, you can easily paddle over the beaver dam, and proceed downsteam for about 2 miles, crossing several other low beaver dams. Once you hear rapids and can see multiple rocks blocking the way, you have reached the end of the navigable section of the creek. There is an informal campsite nearby.
