Gilman Gorge
Eagle River - Gilman Gorge is not just another canyon run. Hitting the Halfway point of this 4 mile run is instantly a look into the past as you are surrounded by the Super Fund Site of the abandoned Gilman mine operation. The first half of this run is read and run Class 3/4 with lots of holes to punch and slaps from laterals that seem to be foreplay to a fight. There are 2 Rapids in this run that are worthy of a scout on your first time. Fall Creek and Slurry Pipe(both of which are past the mine site/halfway point. However if you have a local leading you or group that has multiple laps follow them, it all goes somewhere between 4+ and 5- or what I call Class Fun.
