Wait until the sun's on the water, it's cold.
This is a short, fun little gorge in the stunning scenery of the Nevis Valley. The river runs through a fun rock garden with some nice features. To get to the put-in, drive from Cromwell, through Bannockburn and over Duffers Saddle to Nevis Crossing. Continue up the valley, cross Schoolhouse Creek and you'll soon reach Commissioner's Creek. The ford over Schoolhouse Creek can be deep, watch out for it.
