 The Jordan is a staple run for local boaters in Revelstoke and the West Koots and is the site of an annual Jordan Creek Race. It gives a really good taste for creeking in the area, is a prime length for a fragmented day or multiple laps, and has enough excitement and tricky lines to entertain even the most seasoned experts. It contains a nice mix of short drops, boulder/​bedrock rapids and a classic slide. All this, no more than 10 minutes from downtown Revelstoke.....it'​s easy to see why it's the go-to run in this adventure rich zone! The Jordan is a staple run for local boaters in Revelstoke and the West Koots and is the site of an annual Jordan Creek Race.

 Some nice final boogie before the end of the gorge and the take-out bridge where you left some celebratory beers to refrigerate on the gravel bar. Time for another lap? Or maybe head over to the Illecillewaet Box canyon, another Revelstoke local goodie. There are many other classic creeks in the area, and many friendly locals keen to show you, so don't overlook it on your travels. ​  \\ Some nice final boogie before the end of the gorge and the take-out bridge where you left some celebratory beers to refrigerate on the gravel bar.

Parking beside the bridge or in a lot just past the bridge on the left.

 ==== Put In ==== ==== Put In ====
  
-.....in ​progress+From Take-out bridge, follow Jordan Mainline for 2.4 km (it becomes Jordan Forest Service Road)Here on your right is the entrance to the gravel pitPark outside the gate (or inside at your own risk, if the gate is open we haven'​t been hassled)There is a trail leading away from the south-east corner of the gravel pit (its a little hard to find)It goes towards the east and leads down a steep embankment to #4. This can be used as an alternate put-in and skips the hardest drops.  
 + 
 +For the main put in continue up Jordan Forest Service Road. 600 m past the gravel pit, hang right at a fork. Follow for 750 m. Turn right onto an unnamed road. It goes through a clearing and then quickly becomes tight and surrounded by shrubs. Follow this jeep track until you get to a washout in the track. High clearance vehicles can make it through the first washout and continue on to a second washout that is impassable. Park here. Walk 50 m down the creek that forms the second washout and put in on the gravel bar.
