Dark Canyon, Anthracite Ck
I was thinking of heading to Erikson Springs Campground the weekend of the 20th, 21st and 22nd. Currently the plan is to run Anthracite Creek from the campground to the North Fork Gunni and down to below Somerset the first day...then I was thinking of hiking up the Dark Canyon trail to the confluence with Trout Creek scouting on the way, and boating back down the second day.
I read Meng's write-up/pics on Eddyflower and it says you need to be class V even though the run is predominently IV...I'm curious, does anyone who has run it before think it's going to be too stout for a group of solid class IV boaters who would pre-scout it?
-Disclaimer- I do realize the flow might be ridiculously high that weekend...and if so we will likely just do 2 laps on the NF Gunny.
Thanks for any help.
