Spring Creek is a class 3 run located in Cookeville, TN. It is very dear to my heart, due to the fact that it (and the locals) helped me progress to the point that I could start hitting bigger runs when I first began kayaking. Last year the river was changed forever with an epic flood. In most cases this is a bad thing… but this time it would be the reason for my return.
Spring Creek:
I had been informed that the river was way better now, and even had a steep wave below the falls at the put-in. With this in mind, I headed down to meet my friends that had informed me of the good news (Tom Hehnan and Adam Kamptner). If nothing else, I figured it would be a good chance for me to fire up Waterloo Falls again. I would not be let down, as the wave was WAY better than expected, and a log would force me to try my hand at a different line on the falls. Every rapid had a much more powerful feel with play everywhere.

If you ever need a park and huck or park and play wave…. Spring Creek might need to be a consideration. It is in more than you would think. Enjoy the pics of this great day (Big thanks to Tom and Adam) and look for video of the wave and falls soon.
