Hoffstadt Creek

Today we decided to do something that none of us had been on before, Hoffstadt Creek. This little gem is full on right from start to finish! The crew consisted of myself, Heather Herbeck, Jason Schroeder, Ryan Scott and Lana Young. We had about twice the flow as the description on and was just about right. A few of the drops probably could have used a bit more cfs, but we were just happy that it was in. We had a few log jams, some hellish portages caused by those log jams, and a crap load of fun! We put on at about 10:30 and didn't get off until dusk.....a great day and all of the hard work hiking out at the take-out was well worth it! Hoffstadt is pretty much a drainage straight off of Mt St. Helens, and is on the west side of the mountain.
