9 Mile Float. In flood water you can get class 3, takes about 1.5 hours, at low water you will drag the bottom a lot in a canoe will take a lot longer. inflatables work well. Should have experience prior to trying.

I’ve lived in this area for years and love floating cedar creek. Don’t know about calling it white water kayaking except the time I went right after the snow melted lol. Do it after it rains or when the snow melts for best results, but just watch for a more wet time of year for best results. Kayaks are better than canoes for this since you can maneuver over and under trees in the creek better. I recommend putting in at the bridge in Englewood and stopping either at the bridge down Shelton lane or where MM turns to gravel. both these bridges have areas to park. The shortest float would have you stopping at the cedar creek bridge on state road Y. Just have to park your vehicle anywhere you can pull off on the nearby Klinkenbeard road because the people in the house by the bridge don’t like parking on their property. You can put in at any of the other bridges for a shorter float but you’ll miss the waterfall and the cave between englewood and state road Y.

so... pretty at the start but if the waters low.like it was for us, you'll be doing more time dragging your kayak over rocks than actually kayaking. Also there isn't a good place to get out really at the end, good luck!
