Quartz Creek

Post by rhickel » Mon Jun 21, 2010 10:56 pm

Any beta on Quartz Creek (headwaters of the Kenai River)? I was thinking that the little valley behind Jerome lake (just before the Y on the Seward Highway) where Quartz creek runs through might be some fun packrafting. I've only seen the creek right before it flows into Kenai lake, and it might be too low right now. However, I think the Devils Pass/Creek trail runs across the creek up. higher Anyone seen it from that high?

Last week there was plenty of water in Q. Creek, but lots of wood. It is blocked by miscellaneous junk (willows, a tree, etc) at the one lane bridge just above the Q. Creek campground, but should be easy to get around with a daring leap out. There is easy access from the road just below the "Y". Bushwhack, or put in at the bridge, or buttboat Dave's Creek (very shallow) until it joins Q. Creek.
