The Upper Pine is a 10-mile section of Pine Creek that is perfect for beginners and intermediate paddlers. The Upper Pine is an easier half-day trip but just as scenic and fun as the 17-mile canyon - some even prefer this stretch over the canyon.
This section of Pine Creek features many natural waterfalls, nesting bald eagles, and excellent fishing. There are smaller class I/II rapids that are generally easy to navigate and lots of fun to paddle. Guided Kayaking Trips available!
The Upper Pine is usually floatable in canoes & kayaks during summer and fall at lower water levels (below 2 ft). Tube rentals & shuttles on the Upper Pine are also available—a very relaxing way to spend a hot summer afternoon!
