Not quite as famous as its larger brother, Big Pup, the Little Pup Creek still has some decent drops on its length. It tumbles over some rapids and cascades through broken cracks in old volcanic rock as it flows out of the hills and down into the Yellow Dog River. Recent logging around the creek may leave it a bit clogged.

Directions

One mile south of County Road 510's bridge over Big Pup Creek is a two-track leading east. Either drive a short distance down or park near the entrance of the two-track. Little Pup Creek flows over the track twice a few hundred feet in. The larger drops are located just below the second crossing, off to the right of the road. More small rapids can be found downstream, mostly within earshot of the road.
