Gold Creek is a good sized creek that if one were to cross without using the Shoup Bay Trail bridge, might find themselves in swift waist deep water. Much of the creek runs high in the mountains in a bowl valley before dropping over a series of falls. Only the last 1,000 ft of the creek flows down along fairly level ground, that 99.9% of the time, is the only portion of the creek ever accessed.
