ON THE RIVER, Piru Creek, Exit from the Falls Gorge

Piru Creek, Exit from the "Falls" Gorge


Pausing on an exposed rock, Gary Gunder surveys the narrow, vertical walls of the "Falls" gorge of Piru Creek (CA), near its end. Downstream, a creek (partially obscured) freefalls 80 feet into the river.

Inexplicably the Forest Service has withdrawn their recommendation the segment of Piru Creek from Pyramid dam to Piru reservoir be considered for Wild and Scenic status, citing unremarkable scenic value. Help correct this terrible error! See the action information on the Frenchmans Flat Campground to Lake Piru page of our Southern California Creeking web site.
