What a perfect day! Weather was in the 50’s and 60’s and mostly cloudy. Blew up the inflatable kayak and kayaked across Bartlett Lake and stashed our yak in some bushes on the side of the canyon. Hiking up Canyon Creek we found water a couple hundred yds away from the lake and had really good flow the whole way up till our turn around point. Flow looked like it went underground at that point. Hiking up the creek was a breeze with game trails and some nice old foot trails. Had no problem keeping our feet dry. Sb Cabin was pretty neat. Animal tracks galore up this canyon. This little kayak/hike trip would really hit the spot for anyone who wants to do a little kayaking, some easy creek side hiking, and see some history but still be home for dinner. So anyone who wants something that specific I’d recommend you do this, it’s a winner!

I do think parts of this creek dry up in the summer but some of it is probably perennial. Took a side trip up a side canyon on the way back which led to more trickling water flowing around huge boulders. Pretty cool. Had a blast today!
