This creek is a tributary to the Zigzag River (my favorite river growing up). They converge in view of HWY 26 on Mt Hood. My dad and I ran a short stretch down to the confluence at one point. I recall it being class III and enjoyable. There is an upper section that is steep with wood, but appears runnable. That upper section might be an interesting roadside adventure for the right type of boater. The Sandy gauge is probably useful, but I never took note of the correlation. Zigzag runs often from rain on snow and snowmelt, Still Creek needs more rain.
