At the bottom of either route simply head downstream. The stream passage becomes quite sizable and pleasant, only trouble is that it’s ridiculously slippery so you need to tread very carefully. The water from the Ochre Inlets at the beehive formations is safe to drink (despite it being orange!), and there’s a cup there for this purpose. Beyond this the next major landmark is Northwest Junction. This is really obvious with a large block and the continuation of Main Stream Passage on the left, joined by water flowing from Turkey Streamway which is straight ahead. Heading left here would join the Grand Circle route and Cascade Inlet, but our route takes us up Turkey Streamway. This is easily the best streamway in Agen Allwedd, not only is it big and impressive with nice formations, it’s also not slippery which is a nice respite after Main Stream Passage.
