Stream: The Little NF Wilson enters the main stem about 1 mile before the Wilson enters the Tillamook Valley. The upper reaches are steep and wood ridden, only seek this out if you enjoy adventure boating as you will spend a lot of time problem solving on the banks. There are some steep boulder piles that have some futuristic lines in them up there.
Lower down, near the confluence with Shadow Creek the stream matures and starts to become quality from a whitewater sense. The best of the rapids are class IV, and there is a healthy dose of these class IV's. The access situation isn't ideal, but the solitude is part of the charm.
Flows: We were there on Nov 27, 2011. This was a good first time flow (low, but still worth doing at that flow).
This one is probably too far away to correlate, but is more similar in size to the Little North Fork Wilson than the Wilson itself is. Scoggins Creek was at 120 cfs.
Access: Take out at the Mills Bridge Drift Boat Launch along Hwy 6, at the confluence of the LNF and mainstem Wilson Rivers. 45.4718, -123.7391
We drove 12 miles up Hwy 6 and crossed the Wilson on Cedar Butte Rd, which we followed for 2.2 miles, then veered left. 1/4 mile later we turned right, and followed this road to a bridge over the stream 45.5611, -123.6386. It was tiny up here, and the first few miles were enjoyable in the sense of adventure. There were a few engaging rapids, but also a healthy dose of portaging.
If I were to do the run again, I'd drive 6 miles upstream from the take out and turn left on Coast Range Rd. I'd take that 4.7 miles and use the old spur to walk down as close as I could get to the creek, then schwack the rest of the way to the creek 45.5253, -123.6855.
I recommend anyone doing this run take a look at a map and find the way that looks best to them.
