Wilson Creek v4a4IV***

Very deep schist slot canyon with many beautiful turquoise pools and significant flow. Difficult to gauge the water level: in normal or above normal flows this is a serious undertaking, requiring excellent whitewater canyoning skills. 

This canyon is fully described in the Canyoning in NZ guidebook.
