The North Fork Creek is a wondrous, meandering body of water that flows through the western side of the Paint Creek Valley. Its clear waters bustle with various species of wildlife, making it perfect for kayaking,
birding, and fishing. Signs of the area's geological history are abundant as you navigate past granite and fascinating terrain carved by ancient glaciers.

North Fork Creek is easy to float from spring through early August. After August, expect to portage (carry or drag your boat) through shallow areas. The creek is open year-round, although portaging becomes more frequent as the year progresses.

Water levels aren't monitored and the trail is used at your own risk.
